WTB HMH premium tube fly tool

Looking into tying up some tube flies and was wondering if anyone had one of these adapter tools for my vice that has gotten out of tying tube flies.

2 ways

We have a tapered needle for $6 that works very well

If you prefer the mandrel approach the Veniard adapter at $15 is the best out there.

We have both ready to ship

Lightbulb tube flies

I have the HMR and love it ---but when I tie large tube poppers and flies I have found thay a darning needle cut in half is better that any of the adapters and even the tube jaw--

Angry tube flies

CORRECTION: in my previous post I suggested darning needles --wrong--I should have said crochet needle--cut at the flat spot in the needle -cheap and the fly/popper never spins under thread tension--jake
