An excellent vise for beginners or the Rembrandt’s of fly tying, the White River Fly Shop® Classic Vise is a true classic and features long, tapered jaws suitable for small midge and dry fly hooks. Outfitted with a simple cam lever for superior hook holding power, durable brass fittings, an adjustable stem and stable C-clamp, the black finish ensures tiers won’t battle distracting glares from the vise.

Great for beginners This is the first vise I ever owned and I think that it has fulfilled its job nicely, I strongly recommend for a beginner January 3, 2014
Doe what it is supposed to do Not bad for the price. Holds the hook securely. The c-clamp is a little limiting though and it can sometimes be hard to find a surface that it will clamp to because it is so small. If the surface has a tapered edge you can forget about it. You need a table with a nice square edge. I clamp mine to a wooden TV Dinner Tray - makes for a nice portable tying station. July 9, 2012
works For the price it works. Nothing too fancy about it. January 11, 2015
First vise and still use it Combined with the table top base (about $20) this makes a great vice for beginners and intermediate tyers at around $40 total cost. I've tied from 6/0 saltwater to size 22 trout flies. I like it because it has jaws small enough for tying tiny trout flies and it has complete access on the left (vise# side of the flies #most rotary vises have limited acess to the left side). I've actually bought and used a couple other vises, including a rotary vise that works great #can't beat a rotary for speed on some flies), but I keep going back to this one for my basic tying. Only negative for me is that I had to add a washer to the clamping lever at the back of the vise to get it clamped down on the small #18 - #22 flies. took 10 minutes and a 10 cent washer, and I haven't had to do anything else in four years of tying. It won't win any prizes with the high-end tyers, but I like mine so much that I gave one to a friend as a Christmas gift. December 22, 2014

i'm interested in learning to tie flies, but more interested in tying bass jigs? if this isn't suited to wire-tying jigs, what would be an inexpensive alternative for a beginning fly-tier looking to hand-tie bass jigs as well

A: 
I use this vise for tying bass jigs. I have no issues with it and will more than likely never upgrade to a larger or more expensive model because it works perfect for what I need.

A: 
While I have not tried this exact vise, I have one that is very similar This vise should handle bass jigs as well as flies nicely. It is based on the Thompson "A" vise design which is no longer in production. This type of design was/is extremely versatile as far as the range of hook sizes it could handle.

A: 
This vise should be good to tie flies up to about size 4/0 or so. That would cover most saltwater fly patterns.

A: 
I don't think the vise can hold to large saltwater hooks. I reccomend getting another vise.

A: 
I'm not trying to be discouraging. But if you are going to be tying big flies, you are going to want to spend a few more dollars. Cheap vices like this one then to not have any where near the grip strength needed when you are trying to get things really tight. I've tied flies for a few years and love it. You're better off buying something that will keep you interested in the sport rather than something that will discourage you.
