About Me:
Make my own crankbaits from wood.
I recently decided to dress the rear treble hooks for my hand-carved crank baits,but knew nothing about the process,which kit would be right for this particular project,etc... So, I called Fish USA and spoke with a very knowledgeable rep who guided me to the right purchase to succeed in my project. This kit has all I need and I'm currently working on developing my skill at dressing my trebles. Thanks again you guys!! Another terrific job putting me on the right product to succeed.
Pros: Easy To Use, Great Price, has everything needed and then some.
Cons: None Specified

The vise has rather large jaws and a fixed angle but it is VERY sturdy. The kit has a lot of very small hooks that a warm water (non trout) fisherman like me doesn't really need. Good selection of feathers, fur and misc. materials. All-in-all a very good starter kit!
Pros: Functional, Easy To Use

Just started tying after years of fly fishing. Was always afraid to start working on those tiny flies. You just need to get started by purchasing this kit to see if tying suits you. Kit contains all materials & instructions to tie many patterns. No need to piece together all the different items seperatly, works right out of the box. Sure you'll eventually like to upgrade from this Super AA Vise, but you'll always have it as travel spare. Recomended...
Pros: Functional, Easy To Maintain, Easy To Use
Cons: none
Best Uses: Traveling, Salt Water, Fresh Water

Bought this kit because I wanted to try out fly-tying, obviously! I was shopping around for a better-than-average kit, and couldn't be more impressed. The manual seemed slim at first, but the more I use it, the more second-nature it became. I did use a few YouTube videos to build the confidence at first, though. FishUSA has the best price, and they shipped same day to an FPO address, great service. I would definitely recommend this kit to anyone wanting to give fly-tying a try, and here is the place to get it!
Pros: Great Price
Cons: Instruction booklet
Best Uses: Fresh Water
