Default Re: What am i doing wrong

My advise is to get whatever is in your budget. I have been tying for a year on what is, in all honesty, a complete piece of ****. But the flies it turns out look good and catch fish. I'm just now starting to think about upgrading to a rotary vice on a stand.

I would suggest getting an OK vice (not great) and use the money you save to get some extra materials. You can always use more materials....

Oh, and do yourself a favor. Go out and get a ceramic bobbin, not a metal one. The metal one WILL burr and start cutting your thread at inopportune times. Trust me.
