Is that a danvice I see? How do you like that? This is a vice I am looking into as far as options.

I've eyed others for a while, but its served me well for 10 years and over 3000 flies. I enjoy it enough to stick with it.

I enjoy the rotary function quite a bit. If that doesn't matter much to you, you might look at the Anvil Apex, as it can be angled upward for more complete access to the fly with your left hand.

Peak also makes great stuff for the money.

Hi Cliff,

That is a pretty efficient use of a small fly tying desk. Nice looking desk too.

Are you aware that clicking on "click the image to open to full size" takes you to an Ebay site?

Wow, I definitely was not!

I still had that image there that Steve made up back when, and I guess it somehow got converted into a link to the eBay business he sold to.

I'll fix that.

I didn't think you did. I tried to open a bigger picture of your desk and that is how I found out.

Thats the vice I got. I like that desk too. Right now I'm using a plano tackle box for storage being I just got started.

I used this hook- Eagle Claw 413 Saltwater Hook, Hooks & Hook Storage, Fly-Tying, Fly-Fishing, Fishing : Cabelas.com

and some split shot I found at BPS. Make sure to use smooth jawed pliers so you don't put a rough surface on the jig head. I then coat mine with multiple coats of fingernail polish and they're good to go.

Fingernail polish...this place rocks! Now I can only assume that clear fingernail polish can be substituted for head cement if need be?
