Dr. Slick Ceramic Bobbin
SKU 220-1-965-CeramicBobbins-P

One of the absolute joys of fly fishing is tying your own flies. Whether you’re a novice or a professional, we have the high quality tools to make this art form easier and more enjoyable. Most of our fly tying tools are available in several finishes. Each finish has its own unique properties and aesthetic to suit your individual taste.

Bobbins are the critical tool in tying since they must keep smooth tension on the thread spool and have super smooth inserts to apply the thread to your fly. To this end, we have created two series of bobbins that handle these tasks with ease. Both series have delrin feet for smooth tension on the thread spool and have either dual ceramic or titanium oxide funnel inserts for smooth application of thread to fly. These funnel shaped inserts allow for a smoother application of thread as the bobbin is rotated and they cause less breakage than traditional pipe or straight edged inserts.

Ceramic Inserts

The gold standard for years. The smooth crystalline substance is extremely slick.

  • Stainless Steel & Brass Finish
  • Dual Ceramic
  • Delrin Feet
  • Funnel shaped Inserts
  • Available in 3", 4", or 4.75"

    one problem

    Posted by bp52169@gmail order#114-1756018-7621019 on Dec 6th 2021

    I like everything about these EXCEPT FEEDING THE THREAD! The tube is very small. I had to scrape a bread twist tie down to the wire, make a kink, then tie the thread onto the wire. Trust me, I will not be changing spools of thread very often.

    Perfect For Saltwater Flies

    Posted by David Cronin on Feb 18th 2020

    I tie saltwater flies, primarily with a flat waxed thread. These bobbins work very well, hold their "springiness," and never damage the thread

    Smooth and precise

    Posted by Trout dog on May 16th 2017

    Very smooth and easy to use, and feels comfortable in the hand. It holds the spool tight and the 3" is perfect for smaller patterns.

    Ceramic protects thread

    Posted by AvidMax Customer on Apr 11th 2016

    4" model. Ceramic tip is nice and smooth. No shredding of thread. Hard enough to use with abrasive threads. Solid tension on the hubs.
