New fly fishing and fly tying articles at Fabisch Fly Shop
Of course fly tying tools will be fly tying tools and fly reels will be fly reels. Now and then, however, there are new products, breathtaking inventions or just small, but helpful new gadgets. So, from time to time, I'd like to present different items than my colleagues, items representing new ideas in fly fishing and fly tying. Because of that I have developed quite a few tools and vises myself, and that's also why I'm producing them myself, too.
Still I agree that many products already on the market are outstanding, and so I'll include some in my sales program, step by step.
For 45 Years now I have been active in fly fishing, and I have tried hosts of materials and devices. Also just about everything used with wading. As far as wading underwear is concerned, I tested two-piece suits as well as one-piece overalls. Among them were items costing well above can$300,00, and they didn´t last any longer than the less expensive ones. A friend of mine and myself have tested the Jenzi-overall for over a year now, and the results have been positive except for one detail.
This one detail, however, has been rather annoying at times. Every few minutes one or both of the suspenders would slip off our shoulders. On our 2015 Canada-trip we used cable straps as a temporary remedy, but you can´t sell a product like that. Changing the way the suspenders are sewn on would be an option, but it would raise the price above can$150,00.
Meanwhile I have found a perfect solution: an elastic strap with metal clips on either end. Use it to connect the suspenders in your back, and they won´t slip any more. I am adding one of these straps to every Jenzi-overall sold.
The overall consists of a multi-layer microstretch fleece weighing 250 g/m². The zipper can be opened from the top down or from the bottom up.
Fleece-Overall, available in sizes M,L, XL, XXL, and XXXL. Please add wanted size to item-number!

This ribbing wire is formed by two intertwining strands of shibuichi wire. Other than brass, which is an alloy of copper and zinc, shibuichi is an alloy of copper and silver. The strands have a diameter of .15 mm.
I'm always happy when I find out that a product I am manufacturing solves several problems at one time. This wire is very shiny, and the intertwining strands give a lot of sparkle to your nymph. Tying it in and tying it off works perfectly, and your ribbing practically bites the body material. It won't even slip on sleek bodys formed out of body thread or the like. The spools it comes with are standard spools for sewing machines.

Very fine Dyneema leader, tapered, and knotless, with perfect transfer of casting power right to the tippet. This leader has no memory whatsoever, and other than monofilament leaders it has practically no stretch. The length without tippet is 2.05m (82 inches). I suggest to use a tippet approximately 70 cm to 100 cm long (28 - 40 inches).
A new feature in this leader is the small metal ring at the end. To assure absolutely uniform quality, I have decided to use the rings that Stroft manufactures. I use the smallest size which can hold 8 kg (over 17.5 pounds).

The clamp set consists of one large and two small transparent clamps. It is the ideal tool for those who like using CDC, deer hair, dubbing etc. in a dubbing loop. Two examples:
1) Take dear hair from the hide by means of the large clamp. The clamp will be well filled and contain too much hair for one fly. Now you use the small clamps to take half of the hair in each, permitting you to tie two flies with the hair you cut off the hide.
2) You want to tie one entire fly with one fill of the clamp, but you want to use different materials on abdomen and thorax. You fill one small clamp with the materials for the thorax, the other one with the material for the abdomen. Now you transfer the contents of the two small clamps into one large clamp and then into one dubbing loop. Twist it, tie it on, done!
The above can be done particularly effectively using my CDC & Mix Tool!

Small material clamp for those of you who like to work with CDC-feathers and dubbing. The clamp being crystal-clear allows you to see how far the material you work with extends into the clamp.

Here's a way to tidy up your workbench. The spool tower offers seven compartments each on four levels: room enough for 28 spools. You may also use some compartments for bead heads, hooks, dubbing or what have you. Little boxes for such small parts fitting exactly into the spool tower's compartments are available, but not included.
Included, however, is the transparent plastic container that holds the entire spool tower. So, if you plan to take your tying materials on a fishing trip or to a tying workshop: load it into the container and get going. During transport, nothing will fall out.
