An old friend I grew up with told me his dad was a big fly fisherman back in the 1940’s and he had some of his materials. He wanted to know if I wanted them since he had no use for it, of course I said yes thank you!

anyway there are a few books, feathers, thread, hooks and tools. Thought I would show y’all this bobbin.

There is a hole in the metal tube just above the spool and then it would come out the top end.

The rest of the items except the feathers and they are in my freezer for a while.

Thread/Silk, loose feather parts for tying.

I hope to find out what these were used for.

Your welcome! I thought so as well and will post some more photos of some of the tings that came from him.

Does the string go through the entire tube?
Look like it's good to tie several more jigs.....


Jigging; it's faster than chasing a minner in a bucket!

REGARDLESS OF HOW MANLY YOU THINK YOU ARE WEARING A PFD CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE.....

I believe it will still tie and yes the thread or silk would go through the entire tube from the bend.

I've heard of people using the quills as floats/strike indicators

I kind of thought about that, but I just don’t know how these would be the way they are done. Plus him being big time fly fisherman and in this box with tools. I am not saying they are not for floats, just thinking maybe something else?
