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.

Thank you.

Bobmat1941.

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.

Martin

Okay, I'll put on my sneakers and hit every dollar store in the area! If that doesn't work, I'll try Staples and Walmart.

Thank you for the info.

Did anyone else find a source for the postcard acrylic bases? I'd like to make a few of these, I already have the clips needed.
