Wolff Industries - Apex Vise

apex vise review 01Ron over at Southwest Custom Rods has started to carry the Wolff Indiana Atlas and Apex vises. I jumped at the chance to steal both vises from him and do some tying on them!

These were formerly known as Anvil USA vises but Wolff Indiana which was the manufacturer of them for Anvil USA purchased the rights from them to continue to sell directly as Anvil USA was going in another direction with their product line.

This is the little brother of the Atlas vise and while not as feature rich as the full rotary big brother, this little vise has it all where it counts.

Solarez UV-Cure Fly Tying Resins

solarez uv resinsThe UV-Cure resins are one of the hottest things to hit fly tying in the past few years. No more are the days of mixing up expoxy and putting little dabs on the backs of your flies, or having to setup the fly rotator to coat the heads of Clousers etc. Now you can just grab your resin, add it to the fly and within a few seconds cure it with a flashlight. This opens up a whole new world of being able to build up complex fly patterns using UV-Cure resins during the process instead of just after to coat something. Spoon flies, baitfish patterns, all the way down to thin midges, this stuff is revolutionizing the tying world.

AZ Wanderings Furled Leaders

Olive-600x600First thing I need to say is I'm really late in publishing this review on the Arizona Wanderings Furled Leaders. I've been fishing the leaders on my 3wt and 5wt for about 6 months now, and wanted to see how they held up, and put them through most every situation before giving them an honest review.
