The Daiwa Figure 8 tool has become one of my "don't leave home without it" items. I don't carry a lot of gadgets: nippers and Spring Creek Clamps all the time, Flip Focals if I will be tying on tiny flies, but that's about it. This one, though, has definitely become one of my favorites.
If you tie surgeons knots, or for that matter, any knot where you have to reach through a loop to grab the line on the other side (or push a line through a loop) this tool will make it easier. It will also hold your fly as you tie it on or your hook as you snell it. It really is a handy tool. More info...Daiwa Figure 8 Tool - $30
Domestic shipping is via USPS First Class Mail (unless ordered with an item that must go via Priority Mail, and which has a higher shipping charge). Rates are $4.00 for packages that weigh under 8 ounces and $6.50 for packages that weigh over 8 ounces. The charge is added to your order automatically.
Please note: All packages are shipped via USPS. If you have a PO Box, please list ONLY the PO Box in your address, not the PO Box and your street address.
The charge for international shipping depends on the destination country, the weight of the package, the overall length of the package and the value of the package.
International purchases may be subject to import duties and taxes. I cannot keep track of all import regulations in all countries written in all languages. Understanding and paying import duties and taxes is the responsibility of the buyer.
TenkaraBum.com no longer ships to Russia.
TenkaraBum.com no longer ships to the UK. The new VAT regulations are too onerous for a one-man shop that rarely ships anything to the UK anyway. I apologize.
