Smaller flies sometimes require smaller bobbins, so we developed our Shorty to provide the same level of precision tension, along with a smaller sized barrel. This is the perfect tool for those little blue wing olives, midges, small parachutes, or any other pattern where a full-sized bobbin starts to impedge your ability to see and/or tie. The Shorty also boasts the top-quality ceramic tube, to ensure smooth performance, and a removable vinyl grip.
