"I bought this along with a vice for my hubby as he is wanting to get into fly fishing. He is very happy with it for the most part. Likes the gold plating on the tools and says the tools are made to fit in your hand perfectly. There was only 1 or 2 tools that he said were OKAY while the rest are perfect for him. (sorry couldn't tell you which ones) Great starter"

Flies on the run,
January 4, 2012

"OK, Sometimes you like everything in a neat little bundle that you can grab quick and take with you on the road. This tool kit pretty much fits that bill.
Tool quality is exceptional and includes all the essentials to tie flies, except for a vice, some hooks and your choice of materials.
The pouch looks very nice, but it is a bit flimsy. Too easy to lose a small (and costly) tool by accident. Looks great, but I would prefer a more secure version in a small wood and felt-lined case.
Makes a nice gift for someone who loves to tie flies."

"I have already relegated all my other tying scissors to clipping cat hair tangles. I love the heft, feel and precision of this set. While there is a minor issue of a couple of the tools not fitting to close the cloth case, I do not use these with my travel tying set so it is of no issue. Orvis has definitely come through for me again."

"First time fly tying and I was overwhelmed with all the tool options so I opted to buy this kit while I continue to learn about all the various tools. These things are not listed in the description so I called to find out: These tools are made from stainless steel with brass handles. The bobbin comes with a ceramic insert. All of the tools are high quality and look great. The pouch keeps everything nice and organized for travel.
The reasons this item doesn't get 5 stars :
the larger set of scissors fray the thread unless you pull it tight and due to the serrated edge I can't sharpen them myself. The smaller arrowhead scissors work great though.
The picture makes it look like the handles have no gloss but mine are shiny and don't have that old brass appearance.
The threader doesn't travel cleanly through the bobbin and it takes a couple go throughs to thread the bobbin.
The last issue is that you can't close the flap of the suede pouch with out bending the threader wire.
Other than that I'm really happy with my purchase and Orvis' customer service (as always) was fantastic."
