Re: i would like to get started in fly tying
I've tied with the Dan Vise for some time and found it very satisfactory. I did have a problem with the jaws in that I had them adjusted too tight on a larger hook and when I locked the cam I chipped away a little of the jaw tip. Bought a new set for $20, cleaned the old one up, now I have two sets. About the smallest flies I tie are #20, so I can't comment on anything much smaller than that. For the most part, I'm tying warm water and salt water flies and the rotary feature has come in quite handy and the vise handles the larger hooks very well. Check out some of the vises that Full Creel stocks, you can't go wrong.
