    No Trespassing!

    In 3rd grade Mrs. Sullivan, asked he how I spell aligatah. She said I was wrong.. How could I be wrong if that is the way I spell it?

    Let's face it, average cast is less than 40 feet. You got yourself a nice deal.

    Winter tying.

    I tie all year long. Every week. During weekdays more than 50% between 0300 - 0530, and the rest when I return home from work. Helps keep my sanity ...

    Calling It A Night

    It takes a little getting use to in regards to the size (length). I had to move my C-clamp over about 4 inches to compensate between the Regal and the TRV. I have a habit of resting my left hand on the vise, and last week it was the first time I noticed just how comfortable it was. I have tied just over 10 dozen flies and one thing that I really like about it is that you don't have to clamp down hard on the hook for it to hold it securely. Rather surprising just how little pressure is needed. Yesterday I was at a fly tying event while adding chenille it was the first time I used the rotary, it was SWEET... I haven't found any where it is lacking. I am very comfortable with the vise.
