Default Re: As if I need another expensive hobby...

I am also a champion of cheap, and I still tie, after several years of doing so, with a cheap kit (around $70), but let me temper that with I typically tie in sizes 8 to 18 and nothing smaller and I genrally only tie for myself so I am not tying 100 flies a day. I have added a ceramic bobbin and some new scissors over the years. So basically, you can get the job done with a kit, are there easier, faster, better, etc, sure there are, and a rotary vice can make tying more complex flies, putting on hackle, and many other tasks easier, but the job can be done with a kit vice if your persistent.
