    I bought one from a poster here and I have yet to really get into it. I am dusting it off as we speak and I am setting up a station to begin tying. No bad habits for me to break since I have never tied flies to begin with. I am looking for a desk or table. Does anyone have any ideas about that?

    I made a portable tying station for it, alot easier if you don't have a dedicated space or are on the road. Nor-Vise sells its own board but I wanted more options and and aesthetic touch :)

    Keep looking on the site here. I found one that someone was selling at a reasonable price and hardly used. I even got supplies with it. I have tied a few but I want to now get really into it so looking for a tying desk.

    Norm has a quality product and a great business, and he's a great guy too. He's at shows a lot, try and find one in your area.

    I made the transition to his vise quite quickly and painlessly, the bobbin I'm still getting used to, but it's a failure of my d*&%!kfingered nature, not the product.

    All his products work for me as he indicates they will. The light and magnifier he sells in particular was a great addition for my tying area.

    Also, his videos are free, and he tells you how to build your own tying desk...he's a tinkerer, too, after all.

    I love it...and I think you will, too.

    Just bought his light and magnifier. I hope it really is nice. I don't know how it compares to more expensive stuff, but this seems like it will do the trick.

    I found that when I had a huge tying bench...or a huge garage work bench....I always had a huge mess. Made the benches smaller in both (and increased storage organization and space)... and it's easy to keep the bench uncluttered. Only took me about 40 years to figure that out!

    I notice you are in Spokane. We bought property years ago near Ione (Newport) because my Bro in law lives in Spokane. What areas do you fish?
