Re: Marc Petitjean products
I attended the arts of the angler show in Danbury, DR a couple of years ago and watched a famous tyre set up his petitjean vise and it took him over 20 minutes of tweaking to get it just right. To me that was a poor advertisement for the vise.
A regal, renzetti or just about any other vise is practically up and running right out of the box.
Stick to buying flies....it's a lot cheaper
Poor quality materials are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.
YOUR way is not the ONLY way when tying flies!
Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!
You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.
