    If you are just tying jigs a 'true' rotary vise isn't the correct tool. But get what you want - what is most important is how it feels to you.

    LedHed makes a good point, often the term fly is used for anything tied to a hook (jig, dry, popper, streamer). Jig Fly is still common in some old timey shops to name a jig.

    The thread is size a rod wrapping thread. Finishing the collar is a whip finish that pulls the tag end under many wraps. You can look at other YouTube vids I have posted with a better view of this.

    For all but the smallest sizes you will most likely need to use a file to smooth out the sprue cut. Some tiers don't mind the cut mark and if for personal use doesn't effect the way a jig fishes.
