White River Fly Shop Crest 300 Fly Tying Vise
Designed with simplicity and affordability in mind, the White River Fly Shop® Crest 300 Fly Tying Vise operates with a simple cam-action feature that's proven effective for fly tiers of all levels for many years. The Crest 300 Vise's jaws firmly hold a wide range of hook sizes making it ideal for most patterns from large bass bugs and saltwater flies to small trout flies. The C-Clamp gives you the versatility to clamp to a table out in the field or in any home workspace to tie your flies. The vise's gold handle, fixed angle and adjustable stem will fit a standard pedestal base (not included). Its black finish helps reduce glare.

Good first viseWe wanted a good affordable "first" vise. After playing with several different models on display in the store, we decided on this one. We've tied a couple dozen flies and the vise has operated flawlessly. (before using it, I gave all the moving parts a very light coat of lubricant)
The jaws hold hooks tightly - the clamp secures to the table well. This model quickly and easily adjusts clamping pressure with a single easy to turn knurled knob. (the AA vise was more difficult to adjust)
We are happy with this vise.
High end rotary vises are nicer, but for now this vise works great and was a good investment.
My wife says a fancy high-end vise probably doesn't affect how well the fish bite. ( I suspect she's correct )

Broke with first useI bought this vice last night and as I set up the vice, put in my first hook and as was adjusting the tension (and not using much force at all), the handle broke clean off. With a lifetime warranty that came along with the product, they want me to pay shipping and send them a $4 check to cover their shipping costs. Since I haven't yet gotten to use the vice, this didn't leave a very good impression with me for its value, durability or craftsmanship.
