Smaller flies sometimes require smaller bobbins, so Rite developed the Shorty to provide the same level of precision tension, along with a smaller sized barrel.


This is the perfect tool for those little blue wing olives, midges, small parachutes, or any other pattern where a full-sized bobbin starts to impede your ability to see and/or tie.


The Shorty also boasts the top-quality ceramic tube, to ensure smooth performance, and a removable vinyl grip.



  • Approximately 3/4" shorter than the "Rite" Standard

  • Great for tiny flies or smaller hands, but many tiers with large hands swear by this bobbin.

  • Zirconia Ceramic Thread Tube

  • Small Diameter Barrel

  • Removable Vinyl Grip

  • Solid Brass Arm

  • "Click" Drag Adjustment

  • 1-9 ounces of thread tension

  • Works great with spooled wire
