Blimey it's started already. Top marks though for being so quick off the mark. The last time one went up on Fleabay there were five posts in here before the silly started. You have managed to squeeze it in at the third posted comment. Very well done :eek:mg:

Sorry by why is Beryl being silly ?

only complete idiots spend hundreds / thousands on a vice to hold a hook still.

before vices were invented they had to use fingers only.
or did they have to spend hundreds / thousands on special fingers ?

I have had the pleasure of using a LAW, and I have to say it is the best vice I have ever used and one day I will own one. If I had the cash right now (lottery win pending) I wouldnt hesitate in putting down silly money to aquire it. Im not a tackle tart, but i do spend a huge amount of time at the vice, and I dont see whats wrong with having the best. Or differing oppinions aside, what somebody believes is the best.

As far as comments like this go, I dont consider myself a complete *****, and I am sure that the majority of the tyers who frequent this part of the forum wouldnt either.

Why someone would take umbrage, & call someone a complete ***** because they've spent THEIR OWN MONEY on something they want is beyond me................

I'd have it in a minute but the wife won't fall for my "it's an investment line" cos she knows I'd never sell it.

Exactly if someone wants to shop at lidl (etc)instead or waitrose why is it a problem. Its personal choice.

I didn't want to completely ignore you. All I will suggest is that I am not going there ;)

not really bothered if you ignore me or not.
spend your money how you want.

but what do you know the fish don't care what vice has been used. and calling someone a complete ***** is also my right . i think they are stupid spending that on something to hold a hook.

i spent £300 on a telescope and that makes me a complete ***** to some people but i do not care.
or should i follow the rest of the sheep on this forum ?

I just don't get this current trend on here to criticise how people spend their own money. Not sure if it some form of perverted jealousy or a play for martyrdom by boasting how little they spend. What the heck as it got to do with anyone else.

This telescope you bought, can it let you see past the end of your nose? :whistle:

Why are you getting all excited about something that doesn't affect you in any way ?

Again, this telescope - why spend £300 when you have a perfectly good pair of eyes ?

Anyway, off to tie some flies. I might even try one betwixt the fingers. :thumbs:

Tell me James, weren't you the one who was moaning about getting ill treated at Loch Leven. I think you should shut yer trap and mind your own business, if someone wants to spend big bucks on a Law vice then so Brit. It's not as if you are an expert fly fisher or a fly tyer. If I had the money I would snap it up.

People have the rite to spend their money how they wish without being called an ***** . Anyone who tyes alot knows the value of a quality vice how much you spend on one is a personal choice and those who choose to spend less should keep quiet as its no ones business how much you spend . Thats the trouble these days opinions are like ars# holes everyone has one .

So, is this to be the norm then.. every time a LAW vice comes up for sale anywhere in the known universe, perfectly good space gets wasted in the tying section and a thread is started about it and it gets discussed by people who wouldn't know the difference between a LAW and an Indian if it jumped out of the bog and bit them on the ass?

Awsome :D could id be because the people who start these threads have no idea about fly tying in the first place .
