Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions shows us how to make a DIY tippet spool tender. If you have OCD tendencies (like me) and messy tippet spools bug you, Tim is here to help.

You can also use these handy little spool tenders to tame lots of spooled fly tying material that might be misbehaving on your fly tying bench.

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own spool tenders:

Soft Stretch Elastic Band, 1/4″
Clear Plastic Tubing, 3/16″ OD (1/8″ ID)
Heat Shrink Tubing, 1/4″ (that shrinks to 1/8″)
Hot Glue Gun (with glue rods)
