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.
Good vice 4 the money
Hey if you've thought about tying, but have been intimidated by the price of equipment, try this vice.
It's built very well and has more than enough features for a beginner or even as a portable for a pro. Some have said, "you get what you pay for", in this case however, you get a whole lot more.

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.

This is a great vise. I use it to tie all kinds of flies. This vise is good for tying on small freshwater flies to some smaller saltwater hooks. Holds very well and you can adjust the pressure on the hook and rotate the vise. I would reccomend it to beginning fly tiers. Very happy with my purchase.

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
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.
