Rated 5 out of 5 by BriansFishing Used for years This tool along with a great pair of scissors is a must. I work as a mechanic, so my fingers are rough, making it near impossible to hand finish my flies. I tie all my flies and have used this tool all the way down to a 28 hook. Once I learned to use this tool it is as simple as can be and I get a tight finish. I have been using the same finisher for 10+ yrs. March 28, 2012
