I started tying about 3 yrs ago even before fly fishing. When i got into the Hobby i just bought a Bass Pro starter box with all the cheap stuff to get me started. (I don't recommend doing this!) I upgraded this summer to a USA made Vice that was in the middle of the road price (Montana Mongoose) Griffin Vice. I've always heard good things about Griffin so I didn't think to much of it until I tried tying my first fly with it. I'm almost as happy using my cheap Bass Pro vice than my new vice! Is there anyone else in the same boat?

I've used my "streamside" starter vise for years and years. It was simple, basic, and cheap. (19.99 with shipping) I decided to get more serious last year and got the Peak Rotary Vise. I'm not sure how I ever tied a fly without one of these. That's probably why I never got serious about it. That old vise was a pain to use and when I sat down to tie some flies, i'd get grumpy and loose interest after just a few. I think some are outrageously priced with all their bells and whistles, but the Peak is still pretty basic but everything I could ever need. I've never used a Griffin. Sorry you're having issues with it. What is the problem you're having with it?

I looked at the Peak vice and liked what i saw clean and elegant, then i ran across the Mongoose and it had all the bells and whistles. I'm thinking Peak will be my next investment.

I have been tying on an old starter kit vise for about 4 years. I have been thinking about buying something new, but I feel like the prices are extrememly inflated. I dont see myself spending more than 80-100$.
The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.

You guys need to quit being cheap and get you one of these. All the cool fly tiers have them. :cheer:

For as few flies as I tie, my cheap starter kit vise is just fine. It's my fat, clumsy, uncoordinated fingers that I hate!
