    Sorry, don't know of another source for the vise in question.

    I do think you should consider adding another option: Pro Sportfisher tube fly system (or "Pro Tube" as people seem to refer to it)....

    As much as I like some rubber-legged nymphs/attractors (Yuk Bug, Ugly Bug, etc), lively legz is one product you'll never find on my table.

    Ditto. I generally use split thread on smaller applications. For coarse materials on larger flies, it's often in a loop with Cal's dubbing tool. Sometimes on the Norvise.

    Karen, what is it about the AK vise that appeals to you so much? I'm assuming it's not its value as a collectible, because the example I saw at WAFF didn't look particularly special. I appreciate...

    REI, Patagonia, and Lands End are a few more among the additional outdoor retailers that grew by selling to the masses. In tandem with Bruce's statement, I think it was the 80s when these catalog...

    My vise number is on the plate on the wood base. I have wondered where one would find a # when they don't get the base.

    Those look good. I had early luck with the Prince, so it has always been high on my list of subsurface searching patterns.

    On beadhead versions, I put a tight collar of herl or dubbing just...

    I do recall that tracking # working again once the pkg hit New York.

    Jay shipped mine on a Tuesday, and I had it Saturday. Five days total through Customs and on to the west coast.

    You chose well, Jeremy. I went with oak for the lighter background, but it wasn't easy looking past some of the exotic choices. Enjoy.

    Well I have no such complaint about this one, Byron. Perfectly smooth. Perhaps yours had a burr or an issue of hardened grease? Additionally, I was impressed by the range of tension provided by...

    It's a feature that, while not critical to tying a great fly, some tyers would find highly useful. Takes "rear hook access" from excellent to near unlimited. A good heads-up for anyone considering...

    Thanks guys. I guess it's not bad for aging eyes and fingers.

    lastchance, the "How-to" is really straightforward. Not a complicated pattern.

    Byron, what's been your choice for BWO?

    Byron, yes, it is intended as PMD but could work as Sulphur, too. The biot color is off in pic.
