  1. I like them Sage. Great job!!!
  2. Nice. I like the last one a lot and can see how effective it could be fished as you described.
  3. Without beating a dead horse, I agree with starting out with 6/0 and as you progress in tying you will find that other size thread works better for the particular size fly you are tying.
  4. I have a Regal with stainless jaws and never had any issues. I'm a firm believer in spending a little more for better quality. I happened to talk to a few guys at the fly shop and they said that proper hook placement in the jaws is critical to the life of the vice. Not sure how sensitive Regal jaws are, but the instruction manual with my vice had a section covering proper hook placement. For the price I paid for my vice, I will assure you that I'm following their instructions. Like Piker said, use the size hooks intended for the vice.
  5. I agree. In fact, I may tie one up just to try it.
  6. I thought about doing this myself. Here is a link that gave me some answers and can possibly get you started. http://www.mcmurrayhatchery.com/fly_tyer_special.html
  7. Absolutely magnificent craftsmanship. Very impressive.
  8. Welcome. You will definitely find what you are looking for here as I have so far.
