Among the professional fly tying community,
the Rite Bobbin is possibly the most widely used of all bobbins due
to its versatility and quality.
Below are some well-known professionals
that swear by our product.

|"We met Pat
at the international Fly Tying Symposium where he had an amazing display
of his spun hair flies. Even more amazing is that he has only been tying
for three years."
"We introduced Pat to our Cermag
model bobbin, here is what he had to say: I will be buying more of the ceramic
bobbins, they are the best I have ever used. Super smooth and easy to control
when stacking hair."
Owner, Super Fly
R. Weisner has been tying flies since a seventh grade science fair project
and has honed his tying skills tremendously thanks in part to private lessons,
workshops and personal coaching from life-long friend Chris Helm. Glenn enjoys
tying most all trout flies and is recognized for his interest in Midge patterns
Glenn has been tying, exclusively,
with RITE bobbins for over 10 years. Glenn says - "doesn't it make sense
to spend a little money on the fly tying tool that spends over 75% of the
time in your hands?" Sure it does....treat yourself to a RITE bobbin today!

|"I received your rite bobbins and I've gotten to use them already
in a couple of videos. I was really impressed. I like how you can set the
drag. They're really smooth and light. You can tell they are well made too."

Bobbin solved the biggest problem I was having in tieing bass bugs. It put
sufficient pressure on the bobbin (spool) so I didn't have to squeeze the
bobbing holder, which up until the introduction of the Rite Bobbin, was a
major nuisance. Having consistant pressure on the bobbin does allow for better
thread control and the result is a major improvement in controlling the material
which results in better flies."
|"When I began giving my first steps in this art, my teacher told
me some words which would be on my way forever, "Each person builds a very
simple life and it's always meaningful when that person is the one who leads
it". That's the moment when I realized that if I wanted to achieve some change
or to do something different, I would go back to the principles that the
teacher had taught me."
"Since then I began to fight with
the hook on the tying-bench, and after having the same movements, patterns
and materials, I began to experience that internal change that was born through
my teacher's words. Here is the key of the tie-fishing, it's learnt, achieved
and capitalized the materials creating diversity in each fly made. My realist
patterns are based on the main principles transmitted by my teacher: imagination
is the first one, capitalization and knowledge about the materials to achieve
the diversification in each model and have a deep study, as anatomic as
bibliographic, of the insect that is wanted to tie."
"To sum up, the key of the fly-tying
is found in each person and it's possible to experience and develop passionately
if somebody transmits it in this way. This is the reason why I thank to my
teacher and friend, Darío Pedemonte."
truely are the best. Tying realistic patterns is a little more challenging
when it comes to thread and material control."
"You're bobbins give me one less
thing to have to worry about while trying to situate material. I have a total
of 6 in my tool supply and will probably have more in the near future. Thanks
for a quality product!"
|English: "I bought my first Rite Bobbin a couple of years
ago and it has been my favourite since then. It offers a control that no
other bobbin does. By setting the tension to a level just below the breaking
strength of the thread, it will allow for tight wraps without having to worry
about thread breakage during tying. The precise tuning makes this adjustment
just as easy for a 40 denier thread as for a 140 denier thread. It's truly
an entire set of bobbins, all in the same one."
Swedish: "Jag köpte min
första Rite Bobbin för ett par år sedan och den har varit
min favorit sedan dess. Den erbjuder en kontroll som ingen annan
trådrullehållare gör. Genom att ställa in bromsen till
ett motstånd strax under trådens brottsstyrka erbjuder den
möjlighet till hårda trådvarv utan att man behöver
oroa sig för trådbrott. Fininställningen gör detta lika
lätt för en 40 denier-tråd som för en 140 denier-tråd.
Det är ett helt set trådrullehållare i ett och samma verktyg."
|"The Otter," may very well be the worlds foremost expert
on egg patterns. Although he ties all kinds of flies from large Stonefly
nymphs all the way down to #32 midges using his "rite" bobbins, Walt knows
more about the egg pattern than most anyone.
E-mail him or look him up at the Regal
Vise booth at the Fly Fishing Shows, where Walt is a very popular featured
tyer. You will definitely learn something!

to the "rite" bobbin about 8 years ago, and have not looked back. As a commercial
tier, I can't waste time breaking thread and constantly bending my conventional
bobbin to gain the right thread tension. With the "rite" bobbin, there is
no thread breakage and once you set the tension it remains set until your
spool is empty."
"We sell hundreds of these bobbins
every year, and everyone that tries them loves them. I use the Mag and Cermag
bobbins for saltwater flies, and the Shorty and Standard when I tie freshwater
patterns for myself. The "rite" bobbins have been a great addition to my
fly tying arsenal."
Owner - White Water Flies
who has tied thousands of flies commercially, I have owned every bobbin
available.. Some were good, but most were poor at best. The rite bobbin was
the first that tool that actually impressed me. The rite bobbin makes it
easy for someone who wants to tie just a dozen or the commercial guy who
wants to tie a hundred dozen."
"It solves the essential problem
of thread control with it's infinite adjustability and constant tension on
the spool. On top of that, it has the highest quality ceramic tube and fits
your hand like no other. Take it form a guy that's tied thousand of flies
a year, this product can't be beat!"

|"I have been a fly tyer since age 10, a fly fisherman since age
12, and a guide since age 18. I fish between 150 and 200 days a year, mostly
for trout with some steelhead, bass, and carp thrown in for good measure."
"I have fished the waters in the
Red Lodge, MT area since 1990. Besides fishing, I also guided class V whitewater
trips when I was in my teens and 20's."
"I still enjoy rowing big whitewater
for fun in the off season. You can be assured my rowing skills and safety
on the river are second to none."
