hey whats up man:
i started tying a few months ago. i got the rotary kit from cabelas, and it works great. i figure if i get better i will get a higher quality vise. it actually holds the hook very tight and i would highly recommend this kit for a beginner. if you have some previous tying experience then you might wanna go ahead and get an upgraded vise. good luck man! a day has not gone by that i did not tie a fly since i got it!
