  1. A number of years ago I found an old thompson B type cast iron tying vise at a yard sale for 2 bucks, I have an HMH and a couple of other "good" vises but 90% of all my flies get tied on that dinosour, it holds as good or better than my HMH, it doesn't have the height adjustment like my other vises have so i built my tying area to fit the old one, I came out pretty good under 50,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,B,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

PS i have not tied in about 1/2 a year i am a little out of practice and crowded the eyes a little! be kind hahaha
  7. In the past to make wide flat bodies, I use lead wire tied paralell to the hook sometimes 2 or three pieces on each side of hook. It does make for a heavy bug. also seen foam used as well as lead sheets. just some ideas,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,B,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
