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.

Cheers~

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

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--

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
