A bodkin has many uses, from raising fibers for a "buggy" look to applying head cement in small quantities to a precise location on the fly. The hexagonal brass handle prevents rolling around your bench and a handy half hitch tool on the end of the handle makes quick work of finishing the fly.

Cheap and versatile

Reviewer: from Fort Collins, CO

I bought a few of these when they were on sale. Great for picking feathers and dubbing, punching hook eyes, or applying Clear Goo or head cement. Get 3 or 4 for your bench.

Handy tool

Reviewer: from Warwick, RI US

This bodkin/half-hitch tool is useful easy to use and useful. I use this tool for my traveling flytying kit, it is small, durable, and practical on the stream side.

Bamboo Handle

Reviewer: from Northfield, MN US

I love the texture of the bamboo handle. Some might find it frustrating but I find the texture of the handle really holds the thread as I am getting ready to tie a half hitch.

1,000,000 Uses

Reviewer: from Highlands Ranch, CO US

Cheap, quality tool with nearly unlimited uses. Picking at hackle or dubbing. Applying head cement. Clearing out the hook eye when cluttered up. Picking at and clearing a slightly messy part of the fly. The list goes on and on. Every table should have one.
