As everyone else said, You can get by with these few things
-vise of course.
-pair of good, straight scissors, and maybe a cheap $5.00 pair for the tough stuff
-a bobbin, probably ceramic
-a bodkin.. this is a must have, and you can get one that doubles as a half hitch tool
-I'll add to this list, a bobbin threader. i think i'd go crazy without one.
you should be able to get all of your tools, a nice vise, and all the materials to tie the venerable wooly bugger that steve(steeldrifter) mentioned from GCO if you want, and you should get away for between $100-$150 depending on the vise of course... could spend more (much more)than that on a vise if you're lookin for something fancy. hehe.
just ask around here if you have questions about the things you've chosen, everyone round here has an opinion.
maybe i'll do a step by step wooly bugger for people who may need a good first fly... I think thats a project i could handle. lol
