Magnetic hook holder

Tying on small hooks is often made harder by the fact that the hooks tend to disappear. Keeping control over the small scraps of metal can be quite a chore.

Make yourself a magnetic hook holder. Many office supply stores have magnetic cards the size of business cards with an adhesive on one or both sides. Stick a piece of white paper or plastic to one side and attach the magnet to your tying backplate, vise pedistal or another convenient place.

Now you can stick both the bare hooks and the finished flies to this plate, where they will sit tightly until you need them.
