I tie on the same Thompson Pro vice that I've used for the past 25 years
I am actually considering your suggestion from a previous post and thats to use a vice grip...just to get going.
MoscaPescador, is the not saving too much in money true for saltwaterflies too? Trout flies I can understand, but SW flies are starting at 6 bucks.I lost one 5mins after using it for first time.It hurt. I cant factor my time in as I would be doing it when watching telly and that just costs braincells.
FrankB2, you layed out a good recipe.
Thanks as always gents for your advice.
