1) Fill (really stuff) a film canister with 0000 steel
wool. Put the top on it. Poke a hole in the top with
your bodkin. Use it to store you bodkin in, and keep
it clean (the steel wool cleans all the crud off when
you jam the bodkin in)!
2) Fit the end section of a popsicle stick with the
loopy half of Velcro tape. Two uses:
1. "Hair out" the dubbing on your flies.
2. If pushed down on beads will hold the
bead for placement on your hook. ~ Betty
