When I first started tying (not that long ago), and did not have a vise, I used my hemostats to hold the hook. I then clamped my hemostats in my small table vise. Worked just fine. I almost decided not to buy an actual vise. Use what you have.

If you're an ambitious DIYer or have more time than money, have some manual skills & a few tools. The videos from this YouTube channel are some of the best looking homemade tying tools I've seen. I'm not sure where he is from. I'd guess Indonesia maybe. He post a lot of videos on all types of fishing. Including tenkara flies.

Amazing the professional results people can make with a little ingeninuity and careful work.

And just for fun. One of his tenkara kebari tied on an eyeless hook. A little different technique than I normally see.
