As if I need another expensive hobby...
So I would like to get into tying my own flies, and I have been advised not to just buy a full fly tying kit. The threads in the FAQ include discussion of tools, but I found nothing with regard to a comparison of vises. Is the Cabela's deluxe tool kit a safe way to get a start? Is the vice included a decent one? I do not need the top of the line gear, and I'd prefer to save money, but I would like to start tying in earnest. Basically, I don't want to drop $200 just to get started. I am living on a graduate student budget, so any tips on how to get started in an affordable way would be greatly appreciated!
