Seem to have trouble with large hooks. 3/0 or so for muskie. The vice seems to only hold th hook at a upward angle where the shank will not rotate on its axes. Barracuda JR. Am I not doing something right? I am putting the hook in the jaws grove.

The Baracuda Jr is a terrific vise for this kind of stuff, I know because i just finished a couple batches of 6/0 peacock bass flies today.

I use the back groove mainly for flies that big. Try not tightening down the vise so much and positioning the hook so the peak of the bend is being held by the vise.

good luck, its a great vise
