the only tool you really need is a good scissor the rest just makes it easier
i would recommend a starter kit . no need in drooping over 80 bucks or more for a vice alone if you decide its not for you
. . either buy a complete kit or cabalas sell a nice starter tool kit. i recommend the one with the pedestal base . and it comes in a wooden case . has a whip finisher, and half hitch tools, a dubbing tool, a hair stacker., bodkin, needle threader scissor, forceps , hackle pliers small and large. the c clamp and pedestal base and of coarse the vice . link to tool kits i used to have the delux kit . it makes a nice travel kit . just pop it in a soft sided tackle box . they also sell a suplie kit too. other wise buy a general kit with vice instructions and materials for a few basic patterns .
then check out all the links that i have posted for patterns urls and video they are very good links with easy to follow instructions .
