Please change the name of this thread back to its original name. Not some dumb street garbage name.
Heartily agree! This thread has been around for 21K+ posts and now some "genius" decides that the title needs to be changed? "What's in your Vise" is & was a most appropriate title. Has the "re-namer" ever even tied a fly? Ridiculous!
