How much did you want to spend? I got a HMH Spartan over the holidays, and I like it. I wanted a vise that rotated. It depends on what you want the vise to do, and how much money you have. So we need more info.

Hi i want to catch fish,

Have you considered a shorter handle?

Here is a link to a good reference about fly tying vises. It should be a big help making a selection.

Frankly (pun intended), I thought you already knew how to catch fish pretty well

I have a vice I'm not sure who makes it, but its called the Spring Vise, its only around 35-40 bucks. You can see it at www.jannsnetcraft.com
I have tied tiny trout flies to big bass bugs on it. I used it 4or 5 years then gave it to my son when I got a montana Mongoose aa couple years ago and it still works fine. Its not a true rotery vise but you can rotate it to make some things easy.
hope this helps

There are probably 100 different decent vises out there ranging from $35.00 to $600.00.What you get depends on what you want to spend. Decide if you want to tie on a true rotary vise or a standard type. Most tyers have gone thru a few vises before settling on one they like best. I started on a Thompson A vise & used that for many years & now it's still going as a student vise. If you want a lower price standard vise, that is probably the best out there IMHO...... Rotary tying is becoming more & more popular & I think eventually most tyers will see the advantages to a rotary or at least a vise that you can rotate to see the other side of the fly. You can get a bottom line no-name rotary vise for $35.00 on E-Bay but I would advise you you look over those websites Rip tide & Frank posted & go to a flytying demostration or better yet take a local course before spending big bucks.
Good Luck

IWTCF,

I'll second the motion for the Thompson "A" being the standard for an affordable quality vise. Check eBay for Thompson Fly Tying Vise and you may be able to pick one up under $20, WATCH THAT SHIPPING FEE.

I still use one for big stuff but they can work down to a 16 / 18 also.
