TOPIC: Homemade (Redneck) Gallows Tool

Homemade (Redneck) Gallows Tool 2 years 8 months ago #24704

About three years ago I came across Ian Moutter's book "TYING FLIES THE PARALOOP WAY" and instantly fell in love with the Paraloop, or Hackle Stacker style of dry flies. My only problem was that I did not have a Gallows Tool that was needed in order to tie the flies. So, my Redneck ingenuity kicked in and I came up with my Homemade (Redneck) Gallows Tool.





The wire I used was from a fairly stiff coat hanger. I bent it to the shape shown in the photo with a pair or round nosed pliers, the attached it to the bottom of the shaft on my tying vise with duct tape (the Redneck's all-purpose material!) and a zip tie on the rear of the rotating cam. I use a paper clip cut to the shape shown in the second photo and a rubber band as the "neck breaker" to hold the mono loop with the hackle wrapped around it back out of the way while the front of the fly is finished before pulling the mono and hackle over the top of the fly. This homemade Gallow's Tool dosen't interfer with tying any other style of fly while it is attached to my fly vice either!
The Paraloop, or Hackle Stacker style of fly give a much better float on the water than a traditionally tied dry fly does. I highly recommend checking out Ian Moutter's book on the Paraloop Fly style!

I made one recently but my coathanger is not that rigid. I am still
looking for a heavier duty one. Yours looks great.
