Got you now, Norm. When it says "from the vise of" that's exactly what it means. So far the only picture of flies that I've tied is the group Halloween 2.i wasnt correcting your spelling but asking if you are tying these "from the vise of" flies youre posting?
I picked up some moose hair. Long stuff. Tried it. Proved a bit fragile. Probably need to wet it first?Looking good! When I tied woven body flies, I found that horse hair (from tails or long manes) worked very well on top. I used rod-wrapping thread for the underside.
