Default Re: good starting kit?

by the way, a good starter vise which could last for years with standard needs could cost between $75 and $150. this includes true rotary. if you're just starting out, one of those would be easy on the wallet. as someone mentioned, i would also recommend concentrating on one or two patterns and their materials for starters. plus two thread bobbins, a good hair stacker and a quality pair of scissors would be nice, at least for the trout flies i tie. i use those long pins with the colored ball heads as a bodkin. there are a lot of other tools but ease into those slowly as you need them.
