Your vise, or Mingo's girl........?
That thing is crazy cool.
Words fail. Simply stunning.
Hope you post a pic of the first fly you tie with it.
That be one nice vice....
Beautiful! Can I borrow it?
Love damascus steel! Got a friend who makes knives with it...
Nice! Love the Damascus steel. That should never wear. I thought I saw this vise on a couple of European forums some time back. That is just a thing of beauty.
Ekich (?sp). Beauty. i met the man himself last winter at IFTS. He gave me the run down on his bobbin and the vise. If i had the coin, i'd drop it on one
Damascus steel! Hmmm.... the India vise makers now have something to shoot for.
Nice looking vise!!
That was my thought also. Beautiful, just beautiful.
Waaaaay out of my league. Good tying.
Maybe I missed something over the years,
like realizing that
"A Pretty vice makes pretty flies!"
That could be why my flies look like ducks.
Congratulations on the beautiful vise. Is your head spinning trying to figure out its first fly pattern?
When I saw that case I thought Oh Boy this vise is gonna be special! That is beautiful.
Big E, I have been studing your work for some time now ,you are a master.
Enjoy your new toy.
Interesting how the announcement of the vise's initial ordering and eventual arrival had an amazing resemblance to a few twitches of a popper cast deep into the lily pads. The ol lunkers couldn't resist a closer look..then a taste...and the hook sunk home.
Fortunately, for this ol lunker (and his wallet...as well as domestic tranquility) this kind of popper is seldom found in my neck of the weeds.
Sweet mother of pearl ....
