Colorado Anglers Z797 Standard Tool Kit Product Review

The Colorado Z797 Standard Tool Kit is suitable for anglers of all skill levels with a built-in base, vise and eight tools of high-grade materials.

The eight tools included are;

  • vise with base
  • bobbin
  • threader
  • bodkin
  • dubbing twister
  • hackle pliers
  • scissors
  • whip finisher

These tools are all in a nice and convenient wooden carrying case. This compact and lightweight kit has all of the tools necessary to get into fly tying.

The built-in base and durable case keeps the vise sturdy, therefore this portable set can be used anywhere. Throw it into a backpack for a road trip or a hike without fear of any breakages.

If you’re fly tying on a budget, this kit has every essential tool to start you off. The setup is very compact and easily stows just about anywhere you could fit a thick novel.

Although it may not be the prettiest set of tools, the fish certainly can’t tell the difference. Although I specified that this was a kit for anglers of all skill levels, it’s particularly great for beginners.
