    Default Hand tied flies

    Why do people who sell flies always start off with ( Hand Tied Flies) ? If there is another way to tie flies I would like to see it. There are some who can tie without a vise, but I have never found machine tied flies.

    Hmmm...haven't seen that one. Some shops talk about locally tied, but not "Hand Tied". Probably Chinese characterization.

    Can't resist. I tie flies with my hands as my feet won't let me do it.
    I will go hide now.

    That's something which has annoyed me for years. I still see it regularly, especially on eBay.

    It is possible for a robot to tie a fly, but results aren't very pleasing:

    I will bet you a RC cola and a Moonpie, those aren't robots but some kinds of hand held devices.

    No, I think the guys trying to market his surgical robot. I've seen other clips of the device where you can see the more of the machine.
