   Of course it's a simple matter to cut individual wet fly wings, but the Thompson Wing Former is a fun vintage tool for making classic wet fly wings in bulk. The application of head cement as originally intended by D H Thompson however is a messy step. In this video I show the results of replacing head cement with Krylon brand Workable Fixatif.

We oughtn't tie to please others. If we're happy, that is what it is all about.

The real intent is to have fun tying.
