Whether they use one or not, most
tiers do not understand the full
potential of a rotary vise--including
many of the leading fly tiers in the
industry.  Most tiers are still just using
them to see the bottom of the flies they
are tying, but their uses and
advantages go far beyond this.  

Now with this book, the Beattys share
their decades of experience and
knowledge to unlock the mystery
behind this type of vise and you won't
believe what you have been missing.  
Rotary Fly-Tying's main objectives are
to explore a sampling of true rotary
vises currently available on the market,
guide tiers through the sometimes
frustrating adjustments needed to use
their rotary vise to the fullest, share
tying tips and tricks for quickly tying
effective flies, and tie 36 flies--for fresh
and saltwater species--with clear
instructions and step-by-step
photography.

There is no other book that explains
everything you need to know about
rotary vises and their many
advantages, you will be amazed at how
a rotary vise will improve your fly-tying.
