    Do a search on vises for more info.

    my suggestion is a griffin. They can be had for your price range, and they are good, solid rotary vises for the money.

    I would second Griffin. I enjoy tying on my Spyder.
    Bang for the buck is pretty good.

    for $100 bucks i might go with a renzetti apprentice. it would handle the flies you want to tie.

    Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

    I am completely satisfied with my Griffin Spider vise. I can't see the need of spending more money. I originally got the version with the C-clamp that attaches to the edge of a desk, but then bought the heavy pedestal base and much prefer that. I also added the parachute attachment.

    If you can pay a bit more, there is a Renzetti Traveller on Ebay:

    Hook and hackle is having a sale on their E-Z rotary vise. I've heard some nice comments about this vise as a descent inexpensive vise. Get the pedestal vise and the bobbin holder for less than your budget.

    Does anyone use the "Zephr EZ Rotary Vise"

    I think the Griffen spider will fit the bill, looks well build and well priced
    Thanks guys for the help

    I'd definitely get a rotary vise. I'd look at the one Orvis has for about 70 bucks. I'm sorry I didn't buy it.

    Now that I've looked a bit more I'm kinda leaning towards a griffen 2a
