Better Material Handling
By Rick Zieger

I have a second vice (Old Thompson A) set up to the side when I tie flies. When I am tying in Kyrstal Flash wings I leave all of the flash material on the fly and place it in the other vice. When the second fly is ready for the wing, I then cut the flash and move it to the second fly, where all the ends are already even. This makes it easier for me than picking the material up off the bench. ~ Rick Zieger
