Yes, that's correct. The hemostat is being held by a jeweler's vise. He prefers this setup so that he can tie really tiny flies... down to size 32 on occasion. With the hemostat he can place his fingers very close to the hook.
He once borrowed my Renzetti Presentation 3000 Vise for a fly tying show. He had it sitting next to his own setup the entire time without using it. It was to show that he preferred his own setup.
