Re: What tools do I really need to start tying flies?
When I've used true rotary vises, they have been very nice. The one I linked works fine, I've held hooks from 3/0 down to 24's on it. It does rotate but I've found the jaws regularly loosen when being rotated so I wouldn't call it rotary. If you have the cash and think you'll get into tying, but rotary! I'm glad I got the one I did now almost 2 years ago, it served it's purpose and it's soon time to upgrade.
