Loon Fly Tying Tools – Reviewing a few options with Jay Nicholas

Loon Fly Tying Toola at the Caddis Fly Shop

Loon is a respected source of high quality fly tying tools and quite a variety of associated products. I have only been using Loon tools for the last two years, but they have been so good that I decided to make special mention of several that I use regularly.

Loon Rogue Forceps with Comfy Grip
These are pictured at far left in the photo and are a stunning stealth black.
Cushioned finger grips. Lockable feature.
Serrated cutting scissors at base.

serrated gripping nose to hold hooks or your fellow angler’s tongue securely.

Adjustable tension.
Very fine-point and sharp blades.
Slightly serrated scissors.
Also available in a 5-inch model.

Loon Gator-Grip Dubbing Spinner for Fly Tying

This spinner will not roll off your desk.
Substantial weight makes for perfect spinning of dense material.
You have two options that are interchangeable as shown in the photo – very adaptable.
The finger loop makes it easy to wind your dubbing brush around tube or shank.

I hope you will feel comfortable giving Loon fly tying products a spin on your fly tying bench. They have performed very well for me.
