    Perfect analogy. It had me chuckling for at least half an hour.

    That is a work of art, expensive art for the task, but so beautiful. Funny how the artistic, rarified side of this hobby (bamboo rods, silk lines, single-malt scotch, the damaseal vice, high-end waders) wars with the minimalist, functional side (mass-produced graphite rods, cheap lines, bud, a no-name $40 vice, old tennis shoes). I am sure that it will bring you pleasure. What is the first fly that you have tied with the new acquisition?

    Haven't tied a fly on it yet but am thinking of starting the vice on something I haven't done yet; spey flies. I've got something in mind that hopefully I can pull off.

    Could not agree more. To me it would be worth every penny, and by the way, those are not a bad set of matching bobbins either! That setup just wants me to tie a Lady Caroline or something similar.

    I did too along with the Law vise. Both of them are amazing tools!

    Eric we definitely know now how much committed you are...
    Nicely done!
