Hi, I have a question about the Fly Drying Holder and the base that holds the monofilament eyes up on this site: http://globalflyfisher.com/patterns/tabou-daddy/. Just scroll down to the section labelled "Monofilament Eyes" and there's a picture of the eyes on wires sticking out of a colored base.
The base looks acryllic, but I was wondering what exactly the material it is made of is and where I can purchase it. It looks like an excellent idea and I would really like to try it.

I have a bunch of these too, bought in a dollar-store for about... a dollar a piece.
They are postcard holders, and come in all shapes and colors. The base is plastic, with a piece of wire and a crocodile clip.
I can't find them on the web anywhere, and it's probably something you will just have to "bump into" so to say.
In a tight spot the can be made by yourself. A small wooden block, a piece of stiff wire or rod and some Radio Shack clips. Glue, glue, glue, and that's it.
