What's in your vise?

Care to share some of his thoughts? He looks like a nice guy! View attachment 217492
I don't want to detract from this thread....... keep in mind my chance meeting with Polly was standing on a bridge looking down into the river. I had a spinning rod rigged with a clear plastic "float" and short section of leader and some kind of nymph. That's how I "fly fished" while going to OIT. I remember he looked in my fly box and made a grunt like noise but did recognize a couple of his patterns that I'd bought at the local store. I really don't remember much more (1976?). Now I wonder if those flies I'd bought were tied by Polly?
