This is a riff on the infamous Bird's Nest. Here it is tied on a jig hook with a hot colored bead and contrasting collar. A sturdy fly that can be tied in a ton of different colors, this is a great pattern for filling a box quickly.
516 (Or jig hook of choice)
Tungsten Slotted Bead - Orange
Ice Dub - Tan
Uni Wire - Brassie
Ice Dub - Peacock Black
This tool is great, fits in the hand well, and doesn’t fray thread. Only complaint is that it could be a little tighter. I wasn’t able to hang my bobbin off of the fly I was tying without the thing giving out thread.
The tension adjustment is nice and I appreciate the slightly larger barrel. Makes it easier to get the threader through.
I had the previous model and enjoyed it.. then I purchased this one. It is an excellent bobbin and the thread control is awesome!
I bought the original ergo bobbin and was impressed with it at first. It started to squeak and cut I to the plastic spools of my thread and it was unbearable. I am glad that Loon revamped the bobbin with the metal thread holders and love the new one!
Perfect fit and very smooth bobbin!!!
