 Wapsi Deluxe Fly Tying Starter Kit
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: needs more tools
Comments: Very good kit but has left out a few tools for the more experienced like a whip finisher a dubbing tool and a bobbin threader all of which you can do without but would complete the kit also a website for additional fly patterns would be great.Overall very pleased.

 Dressing rear treble hooks for crank baits.
Pros: Easy To Use, Great Price, has everything needed and then some.
Best Uses: all-inclusive, incl.fresh and salt water.
Comments: 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.
 Great Starter Kit!!!!
Cons: Thread
Comments: I love this kit, has a lot of materials.
 Excellent Value
Pros: Functional, Easy To Use
Comments: 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!

 Everything you need to get started tying
Pros: Functional, Easy To Maintain, Easy To Use
Best Uses: Traveling, Salt Water, Fresh Water
Comments: 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...
 Great Kit for a Beginner!
Pros: Great Price
Cons: Instruction booklet
Best Uses: Fresh Water
Comments: 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!
