Re: Tying Kits - Feedback, reviews, suggestions?
I bought the Cabela's $50 kit myself. I quickly found out that I did not like the vise that came with it. I gave it to a friend that teaches fly tying and I'm borrowing one now from a friend. Like Colorado Cajun said, you can purchase the tools that you need: bobbin, Whip finishing tool, and scissors along with a decent vice and start collecting materail to start tying patterns that you are interested in. Before you know it, you won't know where to store it all or which pattern to tie first.
There are other vises out there below $100 (ie. Dan-vise) just look around. I think Joni here on the forum may can tell you more about the Orvis kits if you are still interested in it.
Hope this helps.
