Smhaen Material Guard

Product Code
24A0077
£14.59

An ingenious device for holding back material whilst working on the head of a fly.

  • Designed to give the fly tier a kind of third hand in the fly tying process, which means it is a helping tool to keep the fly tying materials away from the work area.
  • Very often the fly tier is using some stiff, light and fluffy materials, these materials are often pointing into the work area, and it can therefore sometimes be problematic for some fly tiers to keep it away from that area.
  • This means that one of the hands is blocked by holding the fly tying materials in place. This is where SMHAEN Material guard comes in.
  • A unique design, it can be passed over the fly even though the tying thread is still on the fly. In the same way, it is very easy to remove it again, as it is simply pulled backwards away from the fly.
  • When varnishing the head of a fly, the material guard can be really good, as you very often need both hands free.
  • This tool gives the fly tyers new possibilities in their fly tying.
