vise choices probably depend on how much u are going to use it , its kinda like a car , how many miles you gonna put on the thing in what amount of time !!!! if your not going to tie much then a cheapy would probably last a long time , but if u start selling and swaping flies and lose alot of them , then get a good vise so it last longer !

I agree 100%. Get yourself a basic vise that holds hooks well, that's really the bottom line on vises. If you really get into it, you will have a clue as to what is best for you, and can buy a more expensive vise. BTW, I too wouldn't trade my Renzetti Traveler for any vise.

Like a few others have already mentioned, I've got a Regal and absolutely love it. I wouldn't hesitate a bit to recommend one. Mine has the pedestal base and the stainless steel jaws, which are more resistant to chipping and hold a wider range of hooks in "trout sizes" than the standard jaws do. I tie about 2,000-3,000 flies a year, so my vise really gets a good workout. I've had absolutely no problems with the Regal thus far. It will hold any size hook without adjustment, which is a really cool feature when you're tying a bunch of different sizes. The machining on the Regal is top-notch.

I've tied on (and owned) quite a few vises over the years including Renzetti, Dyna-King and HMH and my Regal is by far the one I like the most. Of course vises are very much a personal preference and what I like, you may not.

I would sugest you try a few out. Whats good for one guy may not be good for you. Go to your local fly shop and ask to try them. Look for a vise with a heavy base, for stabillity. make sure you feel comfortable with the way it opperates.

Enlighten me.

I have used a rotary twice, but most of my experience came tying in Don's place at the bighorn. I volunteered to tie for all of us while we watched caddyshack, ate spaghetti, and drank beer. It was one of the most enjoyable moments of my life. Anyway, I always half hitched before using the rotary feature and hung the thread on that little arm that sticks out in front of the vise and gets in the way. I am assuming that's how you do it?

Don,
If you read this, what kind of vise was that? It was nice.

My wife got me a dyna-king kingfisher the other year for Christmas at the Evening Rise, I like it a lot and I believe it is in that price range. It is a pedestal base which I like, breaks down nicely and it is easily portable, ie to take to work in your spare time.

There is no technique in fly tying that can only be done on a rotary vise. Keep in mind that everything you will ever do while fly tying was done first on a non-rotary vise. A half hitch and 10 seconds to turn the hook over in the vise will allow you to see the bottom of any fly you will ever tie.

Dear Tim Murphy,

I think this is the first time I've ever seen you post without a Salutation at the beginning of your post

I don't disagree that a rotary is not completely necessary and flies can be tied without using this feature. I learned with a cheapie vise and tied on it for 10 years before replacing mine with a Peak Rotary. There are a few flies that I tie where the rotary aspect comes in very handy but I am still getting used to using it to be honest. It's nice to have though, it gives me options.

I guess it's like everything else though--progress and technology have taken over. Please don't tell me that you still listen to a crystal radio, watch black and white TV and use a HiFi Stereo to listen to your music Really though, like anything else, tie on what you're comfortable with and if it works for you, that's all that counts.

Regards,

Jaybo41
