    There's a local guy here in Atlanta who produces a chugger (I think) fly http://eflyz.com/ . He has posted some videos on another website catching trout and stripers.

    So, I am dying to know, what is this tool? I just use toothpicks, but they frequently break.

    Karlie Rae, I don't have one of those tools, but if you will figure out what size wood screw will fit in your dremel and cut the head off. Then thread the cut piece of foam onto the screw. A L-hook works well straightened, the smallest is great if your tool will hold it. I have an adjustable chuck on my dremel tool, which means I can use a needle up to about 1/8" diameter.
