Good video and nice fly.

I prefer to tie off on the post. I use a full rotary vise and rotate the fly so that the post is pointing toward me. I guess it's a matter of what works best for one.

 good idea, i'm just used to tying in normal orientation, didn't think to rotate

Do you find that its easier to tie parachutes with the vise rotated?

thanks for the feedback

 

- I need to look into an ultrasonic cleaner

 

- I'll admit i was a bit "gentle" on this one.... most of my experience is with leaded Hardy reels, which are not as forgiving as the enamel reel in the video..
