What's in your vise?

Some great stuff being posted here. As always, very inspirational for a new tyer like myself. Between work, fishing, no power last weekend and a thrown out back this week, I have only tied once in the last two weeks. Getting ancy.

BTW, I fished 5 hours Saturday morning, chopped wood for two hours Saturday afternoon, fished for 4 hours Sunday morning, ran 4 miles Sunday afternoon and then threw out my back...... bending down to get shoes out of the closet.WTF. Backs suck and make no sense!

Anyway, I digress. I’ll be back at it tonight finishing up my last two flies for the March Madness swap. I’m sure I’ll be posting some -not as nicely tied as most here - concoction inspired by something I’ve seen on this thread. Really liking those vertical worm patterns @b_illymac. Thinking through potential saltwater applications. Could be deadly on the right beach/minimal tide I would think. Hopping it along slowly maybe...
 
sketch-1519834819723.png Was thinking today at work i'm only gonna put Buggers in the money box! Try & do another 6 the same tomorrow? Have to start thinking about a big fly box, got late shift next week, all the fancy tools you can think of, but only plywood & pine to use/borrow! Just to make this money box experiment clear, i'm not planning on selling flies, just swapping them for money! :)

I really like the color combo on that bug.
Well done.
