New Product Review by Jay Nicholas -Stonfo Spillo Curvo Elite

Stonfo Spillo Curvo Elite 2
This most likely is a tool that has been around for some time and I’m just now discovering how useful it is on my fly tying bench.

At first I didn’t even know what the heck it was, but this finely crafted tool has very quickly earned a place in my tool rack and in my hand.

This is a curved dubbing picker.

Although you might wonder what the big deal is and why not use a straight bodkin to tease dubbing, or a brush, and I have used both myself and used both to modest satisfaction – but there is something substantially more satisfying in this curved bodkin, a finer motor control, and less frequent risk of cutting core thread with either a straight bodkin or a wire brush.

Im sure that personal preference plays a big part on whether an individual prefers one tool over another, but this curved bodkin has already earned a regular place on my fly tying tool bench.
