there is a chain of discount cosmetic/toiletries retailers round here called "savers" they sell cuticle scissors, very fine very sharp scissors for a bout 69 pence they are cracking they also do cheapo sets of fake nails...

the smaller ones are excellent for wing cases on beetles etc, the bigger ones make a brilliant baby cuttlefish for swffing... the cosmetic sponges when torn up make the best bread flies for mullet and the pound a go nail varnishes arean obvious buy

Ickypimp, Of course you're not bad. You're normal !

I suspect that everyone on this site who 'ties their own' has stories to tell.
I've nicked 'fluff' off a very expensive Persian rug owned by my parents without them knowing, snipped the dog several times whilst asleep, given my daughter's dolls a little haircut when they weren't looking, and (I can't believe I'm admitting this) was involved in the demise of a friends hen so as to acquire a particualrly splendid cape.

Am I a bad man too ? Probably.

I once read an article to my wife from one of the fishing magazines - it was about the female pheramone, its attractiveness to fish and the fact that the writer had harvested some hair from certain female 'parts' and was experimenting with flies tied with the same.

I could tell from the expression on my wife's face that this wasn't going to be an experiment that was going to benefit from my participation. :(

Last season a good mate told me about getting hair from his lasses lady garden and he swore they turned ginger once they had been in the water.
He later found out that she had cut hair off the dog and dyed it when she was doing hers.
Whats with women?if a a bird asked me for some of my feathers i would gladly give them,no probs!

p.s Yes i am single and my face is still red and throbbing after i asked the lasses at work for their contributions.:eek:
