Here are the same tools and products we use to tie Buggs. We chose the most effective and economical out there so you can tie them just like we do and get the best deal!
Includes the same Atlas Vise, Anvil Scissors, and Dr. Slick Ceramic Bobbin we tie with, and you get a discount when you buy them together. The vise comes with a clamp also, and ships separately.
This is the perfect vise for tying Buggs, the one I use when developing the jigs and tying all of the prototypes. Full Rotary, so you can easily rotate the Bugg to see the opposite side and to help when wrapping materials. Easily handles hooks up to 7/0, and this cannot be said of most other vises. Built sturdy, right here in the USA. Tie jigs at home with the base, and take the clamp on the road. Both included in the package. This thing is a TANK, built tough for many years of use, perfect for tying Buggs. And if you must, you may also tie flies on the smallest hooks with this vise.
The perfect Bugg Tying Scissors, made by Anvil right here in the USA. 4" stainless steel, SUPER SHARP, straight blades with micro serrations. Life is too short to tie with dull blades!
Same one we tie with because it meets our three criteria - Fits nicely in your hand, holds your thread under tension, and the ceramic tip won't fray your thread!
