This is not original with me, and I've tried to
find it on FAOL without success.
With Christmas near, many of us are getting out the
Christmas lights and checking to see if they still
work. If you have the tiny bee lights which have
given up the ghost, cut them into sections using the
individual lights themselves as the beginning and
stopping points. Strip the outside covering off and
you will find a variety of colored wire, just the
right diameter for neat ribbing.
Cost? Free except for a little elbow grease on your
part. ~ LF
Please check out the Fly Tying Section, on the Bulletin Board, here at FAOL too.
