Just joined the forum. I'm a 22 year retired veteran and have decided to give fly tying another try. Where I live here in south central there are not any fly shops closer than a couple hour drive. There is a big opportunity here being lost as Cumberland river is down the road and KYDNR stocks several streams in the area. I wanted to pick up tying again so I wouldn't have to rely on someone over 2 hours away recommending what to use. I started again and have realized how much I enjoy it. Who knows maybe I can get something started here. But just wanted to say hello and look forward to becoming a part of the forum.

Welcome to the site, Kyblev. Glad to see you find your way "back" to fly tying. Here in Florida, I rarely see another fly angler on the water. I always get attention. Hopefully, you'll get some too, maybe start a fly tying "game night" !!

Welcome to the site. I spent a few years in NW Tennessee long before I took fly fishing. I've been using a Danvise for 15 years now. The price last time I brought one was around $100. Not a pretty vise. Blue collar would be a fitting description. Once you start fishing for smallies you'll forget all about trout. Besides the flies are easier to tie.
