I've got that exact green vise. It was given to me by a gentleman I met once when I was 9. He showed me how to tie a fly. He died shortly after that and his wife gave me his fly tying equipment. That act of kindness gave me such a great fishing interest and to this day I am still thankful. It started a fishing fever which I never have gotten over. I love fishing.
I think your videos are really straight forward and I will be they will inspire some youngsters to enjoy fishing on a more intimate level. When you make your own jigs, streamers, or spinners, then catch a fish on them its really quite a thrill.

I have another vice I use too, it is a bar going straight up and another straight out. I got it from an old man, a grandfather of a friend that tied jigs for many years. He gave me the vice, showed me how to tie jigs and gave me some acrylic hair. All this in one hour. I never saw him again, that was many years ago. I really appreciate what he did for me. The fish hate him though, lol.
I can't remember where I got the green one, think I bought it from a friend. I like it better, its smaller.
