kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

Nothing's less cool around here than tiny flies, tied to fish with absolutely no soul on a one hander. On a tailwater.

I am tying them for Jerm's auction though. That's a jujube in the vise - a genius Charlie Craven pattern.

The only thing less cool than tiny flies is catching fish...

Catching fish was sooo 2007.

Great tie, Bruce. Looking forward to seeing the finished batch for the auction. :cool

Says the Holden Caulfield of The Drake...

Renzettis are fine.

If Heero ties on anything besides a Thompson Model A, then he's a phony.

I use an HMH Spartan.

If they were good enough for the 300 at Thermopylae, they are good enough for me. Youve all heard the saying, Im sure:

"Go tell the Steelhead and Salmon, stranger passing by,
That here, obedient to Kelson, Blacker, Rogan, and Traherne law, we tie."

Yeah that Traveler sucks. $115 in 1993. I did spend $50 or so to get the cam jaws a few years ago.

Sucks that it'll hold a size 24 TMC 2488 so perfectly - same goes for a 2/0 Owner Aki.

I have probably tied 2000 pheasant tails alone with that thing just for myself, and about a Brazilian midges, and lots and lots of other stuff.

Can't disagree that some of those mega dollar highbrow vises look pretty nice but I never understood exactly why folks hate Renzetti vises. Don't make me cry, Heero, and don't make me make you cry either. Maybe we both already have. :cool
