Cool tip, I'll try it out. This would be really handy when tying materials that require resetting of the thread vector over the wrap, in other words to position it before continuing and tightening. I've recently gone back to tying with finesse after a season of striper flies - because of the journey to the northwest. I remembered how accurate the thread placement needs to be when tying Spey flies, etc. This is only magnified when applied to trout flies.
