  1. Took the words right out of my mouth.
  2. Hey all sorry I've been absent on this thread, busy weekend. From the sound of the masses, I think I'll just pick up a stockard or HMH one. I figured the regal one would be nice to go with my revolution, but sounds like the others are more versatile. Thank you guys for the help and your time.
  3. Does anyone know if Regal still makes the tube fly adapter for their vise? Also, does anyone here have experience with it?
  4. I found this after a quick google search: https://www.moonlightfeather.com/bulk-turkey-feathers/
  5. I use biogel gloves, but that's when I'm at work haha Look for tourniquet material that is disposable at a medical store, usually comes in about a 50-100yd amount and will last forever.
  6. Thank you Jp, the mack is easily one of my favorite patterns for the local waters here, it works really well for trout, as well as steelhead.
  7. Got mine in the mail the other day, awesome stuff as always! Thanks for the awesome swap Bryon.
  8. Spring break has given me some time to tie as well as have some fun at the end of the month tying night at the local shop. I'm just waiting for the rivers to slow down and lower a bit.
  9. I own a mongoose and love that vise to death!!! Just tied my largest on it, a 6/0 the other week and it held that fly harder than anything. Your design looks great my friend.
  10. J-vise hackle pliers are really sweet, and only $15 at that, although I'm not sure on shipping costs.
  11. On a day filled with spectroscopy and physics finals, Silk's humor is welcomed and very much appreciated. The vise you showed looks really awesome! I'm curious, the jaws look like mongoose jaws, which I'm curious if they are or if you used your mekanickel enginearing skillz to make yurs.
  12. I'd say - griffin mongoose ( I've tied sz 32 - 6/0 with ease) $195 at fly fish food - peak around $155
  13. My thought was that they were harder than the traditional as well. But the smaller point does sound like a good advantage. I just ordered a regal, but I think I'll upgrade to the stainless when the finances are in order. Thanks for the good info.
  14. What is the advantage of the stainless steel jaws versus the traditional jaws on a regal?
  15. Thanks for the heads-up RogueFlies -- I will post on here when they arrive. RogueFlies your package arrived safely --beautiful flies! Awesome!!! Glad they got their safe and sound. Thank you for the kind words, I'm excited to see everyone else's.
  16. I bought the TMC magnetic bobbin and I love it! It takes a day to get used to the adjusting on it, but once you get it down it takes less than 30 seconds to change out a spool. I'm kind of a tool geek though so to each their own.
  17. Just put mine in the mail this evening! Should be there by Friday the man said.
  18. I have mine all tied up, I'll be sending them out either Friday or Saturday.
  19. I'm still working on mounting wings, but I think it's starting to pay off. This is a freestyle based off on a Glasso style tinsel body.
  20. I'm in, I'll be doing Mack's Canyon, originator Doug Stewart back in the 1970's on the Mack Canyon stretch of the Deschutes here in Oregon.
  21. It has been a long time since I've posted on here, I've been busy with school and a new born that all my fly tying hasn't been uploaded too much to the internet. I've been working on classical Spey/Atlantic salmon patterns so here is one I hate and feel is at least alright to get some feedback on.
  22. I'm curious as to if you find doing an articulated version of this pattern is easier than doing the original single hook patter. To me it seems like it woul dbe easier, then again, I don't ever tie salmon flies haha. They seem fun though.
  23. Fly fish food sells the full complete mongoose package for $185, come with c-clamp, pedestal, some miscellaneous tools, bobbin cradle and a very nice traveling case. Thats where I got my mongoose from, great service and an amazing stinking vise.
