I have purchased a device they sell in auto parts
stores. It's a telescoping wand with a small
I use that for finding the hooks I drop on
the floor while tying and the device picks up stray
flies quickly off the carpet.
Cost of the device was between $2 or $3.
Please check out the Fly Tying Section, on the Bulletin Board, here at FAOL too.
