Default Fly tying vice for Muskie lures

I have been tying Muskie bucktails----spinnerbaits and in-line lures. The vice I have been using is in bad shape and needs to be replaced. Can easily use 5/0 hooks but have to force the 7/0 hook into the jaws. Am looking for a inexpensive vice able to open wide enough to insert up to a 7/0 hook without forcing it. Most of those I have looked at will open to 5/0 thickness. Any suggestions?

Thorne Brothers sells a clamp on Vice that is essential a Vice Grip Welded onto a post that can be screwed onto any table /work bench. With the adjustable Vice Grip you could but 10/0 hook in it and you would be fine. It works great...

What I have done is. get a small c-clamp "large enough for your table" a piece of 1/4" round steel rod a steel nipple for the rod to slid in. drill a hole and thread for set screw and a small vice grip weld them together with the vice grip at an angle of your choice. Works great for large trebles and wire coils. I do know thorne bros sells that combo. But the project was great!!

As long as you don't feel the need to rotate the hook, just a small what I would call a bench vise would probably work very well.

It's $100, but the ability to rotate is really really handy. I've put 6/0 in no problem, can't imagine 7/0 would be an issue.
