Thanks Gentlemen. Custy is exactly what I was going for. Watched a video recently with Harry Lemire tying a full-dress in hand using a bobbin, a bodkin and a heated hook as a cauterizer. Being that I've chosen Mr. Lemire as a mentor - of sorts - I've switched to using a bobbin also. Like tying off the vise - using a bobbin has it's place...;)

Cutthoat1954 - These are dressed for Steelhead btw.

Cool flies; i tried a bobbin once in hand and it was a pain in the ass and never tried again. Pinky and ring finger is easier imo
