Settle down at the back, I’ve not even mentioned his Magnum Tool Set yet!
If you have ever tried to dub things like Krystalflash, Flashabou or Deerhair you will know how hard it can be, makes dubbing seals fur seem like a doddle.
There I was trying to dub some Deerhair onto a sedge pattern, complete nightmare, not to be defeated, I got the Marc Petitjean Magic ToolSet out, and was soon banging out Deerhair dubbing brushes. What I like about the Magic Tool is that it enables you to tie in all manner of materials into your dubbing brush at the same time without any problems at all.
Try mixing different colours and types of feathers and fur, including dubbing and/or synthetic materials, the Magic Tool will do the trick!
The Magic Tool Set comes with 3 table clips, 2 regular clips and 3 wooden dowels,
which can be used for winding and trimming synthetic materials such as Flashabou, Krystalflash or Floss into small strands of exactly the same size. It also comes with illustrated instructions.
Now that winter is once more upon us, fly tying can become a chore unless you have adequate lighting. Daylight Lamps give you the light you need while not straining you eyes, with their natural light bulbs, you also have the benefit of true colours in your flies. If you have ever bought something in a shop under their unnatural lighting conditions and then wondered why it’s a totally different colour when you get home and look at in daylight, then you will know what I am talking about.
TheNaturalight Table Magnifying Lamp has the added bonus of including a 3.5″ diameter magnifying lens ( 1.75x ) with a 4x inset to make your close up work easier. This makes eyestrain a thing of the past, and tying flies in the dark hours a pleasure rather than a chore.

This large stable pedestal base model Peak Vice will hold where you set it, and the non-marking feet protect the surface you set it on. The steel base is powder coated in white, for a surface that will provide a backdrop you can see your materials against.
The base also includes an integrated hook/bead pocket with rounded edges for ease of removal, and our accessory post-mounting holes. The base is designed to pack flat for travel with the vice removed.
