Years ago the hardware store down the road had a desk lamp on sale for $5.00. That's what I use. I also have a high intensity lamp that I purchased for the same purpose that is bit more compact, I use that when I'm travelling, that cost about $20. I bought that one at Target.

Thanks for the info guys- I was just looking around for a fly tying light. Hit Jo Ann's website and bought an OttLite high def folding craft lamp. Orig price $59.99 - 50% discount, plus tax and shipping($6.95)

Great price for a high def energy efficient daylight tube that packs with the rest of your FT gear.

I found a Michaels flyer in my news paper, it was for 40% off.I went over a found a nice light,very reasonable with the coupon.I also got a magnifier that fastens to the base.The magnifier part was great,but it clamped on the base with a plastic bracket. I almost broke it putting it on.I am taking that back and keeping the light.I will look around for a magnifier. Thanks again for all the input.

Has anyone use those McKenzie lights that mount on your vise shaft? J Stockard has the bright light on sale for $90. Just curious as to what everyone thought of them because I've seen a lot of guys using them at the tying shows.

At the lancaster show I asked the people that had them about them and besides being nice and bright convenience of travel was the biggie.

For traveling I just got a little gooseneck LED desk light from Target or somewhere similar. However, the LED light is a little bluish and a daylight lamp is easier on my eyes. I can tie flies under LED light, but for some reason need daylight to wrap rods.

Magnification depends on your eyes. Never needed it when I was young; now I do. I prefer just getting higher power reading glasses. Others prefer the magnifier. It's a personal choice.

All this talk of lamps made me jealous. I went to Michaels today and got the $100 Ott light with a 40% coupon for $60. I'm gonna test it out tonight and l'll let everyone know what I think.

Follow up....it's badass. A little big and awkward but amazing for tiny flies.

The bulb from a desk lamp can't hold a candle (pun intended) to one of these things IMO. It's definitely true light and allows you to see every single detail and color like it was in the bright sunlight.

One thing's for sure, a good light makes all the difference in the world at the vise. Really it's a shame good ones cost so much because alot of people that will not pay it will never know. And if and when they do they would wonder why they waited so long to do it.
