Fly Tied Without a Vise (Caddis Pupa)

At the Fly Fishing Show, Daniel Galhardo (Founder of Tenkara USA)
asked if I had ever tried tying a fly without a vise. I had not. Today, 
this was my first attempt at tying a fly without a vise. I will have to 
experiment with some traditional Tenkara fly patterns soon.
