    I ended up purchasing a Renzetti Traveler for $90, cannot beat that price.

    Hell of a deal. And I think that vise is rated for hooks up to 2/0, which I consider plenty frickin big.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    4/0 actually and I was able to fit in a 5/0 and 6/0 comfortably in the jaws.

    This is not the first thread posted about this subject. It might be a worthwhile bit of time to look back thru the archives & review these other discussions. There are as many different vises it seems as there are fly rods to choose from now a days. If I was to give any advice at all that would be to make sure you find one that is true rotary & one that is very comfortable for you. I have used an old non-rotary, a Renzetti (for fly tying classes) & I purchased a Peak. I love using my Peak & tie everything from small midge patterns to big tube flies. You may want to even sit down & have the shop owner let you tie on a vise before buying one.

    Best of luck. You may find it's great to catch fish on your flies.

    Tie One On--------------------------<*)))))))))><
