Tiemco TMC Solid Vise Silver Heavy Duty (HD)
Used for my travel fly tying kit.
Testing several tying vises in the past four years, including cheap, noname, medium and high quality products, I can confirm, that quality is not price-dependable at all.
Found good items for acceptable price and low quality for horror price.
This vise can be considered as a very good quality-price compromise.
First of all we examined the steel quality, perfect tool material, like the Petitjean's one.
Japanese steel, japanese quality.

|Gammarus flies, colours in "degradé" , ready for deployment|
I don't believe in ultrarealistic flies, but may be the shape, the "feeling" and the colour of a fly is important.
An other important characteristic of the Gammarus flies is their weight. Deeper streams needs heavy flies.
Tungsten beads solve this problem, but what should be done, when a flattened body is needed?
A lead-based, multilayered body may be one solution, although several other techniques may be applied.

Friends, acquaintances showed their tool kit, I obtained some from chance purchase, finally one of my friends offered his Petitjean vise to try it and let me decide after.
I heard about this vise, I knew it already from several pictures, but it appeared expensive.
I noticed that I am involved in top quality promptly as I took it in my hand. Yet before altogether fly I would have been tying with it, it has been thoroughly examined.

The Hungarian Flyfishers Association (MÜHOSZ) use to organize on the end of the year a flyswap action. Quasi regularly.
This year a wasp-pattern should be tied.
The presented pattern was very effective for me this year for chub.
At the beginning I had problems with the floating ability.
If an extended body is made of polycelon, the fly dives on its nose, takes are more ineffective, the fly swims, but not naturally.
Tied several variations to improve this pattern, here is the result:

I beg to remark that these flies are self lightning and NOT shining, they have their own light, after a flash illumination.
Used materials and some samples will be presented.
