  1. Gene,

    I am a collector. I owned the vise, third hand base and stackers. I found it to be a really nice vise. I particularly liked the shape of the jaws which allowed such access!!


    I would think the whole setup is probably worth well over 750.

    In the final analysis, it is worth what the particular collector is willing to pay


    Just my 2cents worth

    Know what a Luna is in Hawaiian?????

  3. Oh, The Henry's Fork, that's East for me.

    The fly should work, timing the hatch can be hit or miss...



    Man, you should have been here last week, it was awesome!


    Yes, or: "Will you be here all of next week? Should really be good by the end of next week."

  4. Hi,


    This is sort of a cross between a Stimulator and a Soffa Pillow. Been trying different materials. This one has an Underwing beneath the over-wing of bucktail. I use uni-stretch thread for the body.

    Will this work in late May/early June on Western rivers? I hope so.



  5. I thought that sparkle duns sat flush in the water film. Was I wrong?


    PS What's a Flav hatch? Never heard that term before.



    I said that these are new patterns I am thinking of trying as opposed to the Sparkle Duns we used last year. The Flavs are a tiny Green Drakes. A different hatch.

  6. It sort of depends on how much you are willing to spend. I think most tiers would give you the advice that you should spend as much as you can comfortably spend as the vise is the most important tool you will purchase in fly tying.


    I'm not sure that it is still available, but Hans Weilenmann has written articles for Fly Fisherman magazine in which he discusses the better vises available. I think you can find it in the archives at Fly Fisherman's magazine.
