FIrst Vise

Recommended Posts

I am new to fly tying and have done some research but am still wondering about which vise to possibly purchase. I have read some forums that say quality is better than trying to buy an all-in-one kit. I would be tying a mixture of saltwater and freshwater flies, but I was wondering if anyone has any insight on vises they use or may recommend. Thanks in advance.

Hi There,

I have and would happily recommend the Griffin Montana Mongoose.

Comes in a plastic case with both G Clamp and Pedestal bases. Even has a bobbin included

Cheers Snelly

Renzetti rotary. Pedestal. Traveler model. I have been using one for 10 years. Make sure what ever you get has adjustable jaws large enough to handle salt water hooks.

I have the "Traveler". I have the pedsetal and the vise, but I haven't used the pedestal in a long time. If you have a local fly fishing group in your area, stop at one of the meetings and talk to them and see what they tie and where they get thier supplies. Go slow or you will tie up a small fortune in material. Experience speaking :content: There are thousands of fly recipes on line. Buy good hooks, good scissors and several bobbins.

Renzetti is made in Florida, Titusville, I think. Good people and good service.

Renzetti - I have been tying on their vises for years - in and of themselves, they make you a better fly tyer. The Traveler model is probably a good start. One of my two Renzettis (one North, one South) is a Traveler, which I use mainly for saltwater flies.

Dyna-King!!! No substitute. This vise will last for your kids' kids. If your not already a member of a fly tying club do so first. They will usually have different vises to try and you will quickly learn the difference!
