Using the brooch
Reviewer: A viewer from West Byfleet, Surrey EN
I have used this type of brooch to tie Salmon flies. The only problem I had was tying materials between the pin and shank, as the pin does not move much further than about 25 degrees to the shank. However, tying carefully and weaving the thread, in similar manner to ribbing a hackled fly solved the problem. I have used another type of brooch, where the pin is connected by a clasp on the shank. If that breaks, then you do have a problem!
Hareline Gold Brooch Pin
Reviewer: A viewer from Maumee, OH US
I have ordered over 20 dozen of the Hareline Brooch Pins and have had only minimal issue (2-3) with the pin separating from the hook. A little fishing glue and tight thread wraps solved the problem. This is the best value in fly brooch pins I have been able to find.
