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.

Tungsten Slotted Bead - Orange
Ice Dub - Tan
Uni Wire - Brassie
Ice Dub - Peacock Black
I have used the Ergo Bobbin since it came out and love it!
I recently had a warranty issue with one of mine and contacted customer service via email and boom within a day I had a credit for a new bobbin. I decided to try the newest version, so I ordered one immediately, it arrived like magic the next day. So much smoother and sensitive to work with plus, I love the bright yellow paint job, being a bit of a spaz at the vise, it saves me precious "looking" time.
Excellent bobbin loon listens to all input and always improves on already great products this improvement on original just makes that much better!!
Perfect for tying big midwest smallmouth bass flies.
You can not get a better Bobbin for the money. Try one you will like it LOON.
Functional, fits well in my hand. I have a number of the adjustable bobbins but I appreciate the simplicity of adjusting tension with pressure form my hand.
These bobbins are a great value and an excellent design. I own three of them, each spooled with a different color of thread. I especially like the way that the part of the bobbin supporting the spool of thread fits into the palm of my hand allowing my natural grip pressure to control the tension applied to the spool. The design of the bobbin head fits well between my thumb and forefinger giving me good motion of control over the application of thread. I would recommend these bobbins to anyone wanting a good tool at a reasonable price point.
Of the many bobbins I’ve used over the years, this has without a doubt been the most comfortable in my hand and out performs any other by far. So much so that I know own 6 and wouldn’t consider using anything different.
