What's in your vise?

sometimes it's just easier to tie a piece of feather (or fur) to a hook. I find it funny that I can spend an hour on some of my musky flies getting things exactly how I want them, while for just about any other species of fish I target, I simplify....but hey, it works. These make a great steelhead fly too, and a great surfperch fly (in orange)...sometimes (usually) simple just works.

Cheers!
