I'm currently looking for a cheaper ($150-$300) vise to tie Atlantic salmon flys on. I've been using a cheap Cabelas vise for around 6 months now and I figured it was time for an upgrade. I would like a vise that you can tie larger flys (streamers) on and smaller flys (wire flys, small dry flies).
I've looked at vises like Renzetti Traveler and The Montana Mongoose. I would only like recommendations on pedestal vises. The littlest of help would be greatly appreciated.

Get a rotary Regal and you will be able to do all you desire. Flies as small as a #20 and Atlantic salmon and streamer flies to 3/0. I'm quite sure it is less than $300. The spring operated jaw holds hooks instantly and they do not move. Hooks will bend before they move in the jaws. Another nice feature is the back jaw has a radial groove in it that aids in securing larger hooks. I use my non rotary Regal to tie hundreds of Clouser minnows and steelhead flies every year.

Thanks for the ad-vise, ha. Looks like I will be doing a Regal then, heard from multiple people that it's a really nice vise.
