amateur fly tying not economically justifiable

I don't tie many flies, but when I do, I tie them on a Thompson A vise. Keep tying, my friends.

Another thing: If you buy "starter" tools, it doesn't take long to discover that "starter" vises won't hold hooks well. So you go out and buy a good vise, and the downward spiral begins. :-)

The suspenders go over your shoulders just as regular suspenders, and the straps on the hip waders which usually attach to your belt attach to the suspenders instead.

suspenders for hip waders

Several years ago I saw suspenders for hip waders in a flyfishing catalog. That store no longer carries them. Does anyone know where I can find some? Byron?
