There use to be a guy in Spences Bridge that tied steelhead flies without a vise. Can't remember his name, but the Log Cabin Pub had a couple of his flies on display behind the bar. But that was many years ago.

WHY?
I have.
Had to use vise grips wedged into the picnic table at one time years ago....
But to do it on purpose when you didn't have to?
I think there would be other things one could forego to enhance the challenge.
IMO.

Ha! Fishslippers, if I was to buy a vice why on earth would I buy a cheap $20 thing? I'd be looing at a Norvise or something along those lines.

I guess no one is up to the callenge.

I'm tying chironomids down to a size16 between my finger and thumb. I do use a bobbin holder because it helps stop the thread unwinding but that is all.

And aargh hit it on the head.

Oh, Davie Mcphail is up to the challenge just as soon as he get's the available time ;). It'll be on the 'tube :)
