My son and I have had a great time time fishing together this spring before covid-19 put an end to our fishing adventures. After a day on Lenice a couple weeks ago he become very interested in tying his own flies. I showed him how to tie a bloodworm and a basic chironomid pattern and he's had a handful of flies ready for inspection every day this week when I've arrived home after work. With the school closure tying has been wonderful activity for a bored homebound kid. He is currently tying with a very basic vise that I purchased in a "learn to tie flies" kit over 20 years ago. The vise he has works but it is really hard to adjust the jaws to get a decent hold on the hook. I'm hopeful that someone on the site has a surplus vise that they are willing to part with. I'm not looking for anything too fancy. An older model with limited features should suit him just fine. The most important thing for him would be a vise that adjusts easily without requiring a ton of finger strength that can hold a hook securely. If you have something that fits the bill please let me know. Thanks!
