I think the tooth pick or piece of match is to hold the nylon attached to the treble to stop the fly falling off. Definately not part of the dressing, just a clever way of holding the fly in the box.

The other one looks like a devon minnow mount with that much lead byou could almost cast it on a fixed spool reel. A real cast and duck set up. Possibly for the Tweed in Autumn.
