Whip Finish Tool
By Steven H McGarthwaite

I was at a fly tying demonstration at Bentley's Outfitter's in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. Dave Whitlock was demonstrating how to tie his Red Fox Squirrel Nymph with a beaded head. Dave did something that I have never seen before, he whip-finished behind the beaded head using dubbed thread. The tool he used to do this is a thread-puller. The difference is that this thread-puller uses tippet material instead of wire. You can make one of these "Whip Finisher's" very easy with a small stick, and some tippet material, secured with thread wrap, and some adhesive.

This will eliminate any thread buildup showing on a finished beaded head fly pattern. Makes for a big improvement.
