It is the oldest precision-machined fly-tying vise on the market. HMH, a Brunswick company, builds and sells a range of stainless steel vises that are not only guaranteed to save fly-tiers' fingers, they're guaranteed for life.
It's an elegant, high-performance vise, and it lasts forever, explains company owner and president John Albright.
Priced from $239 for a standard bench C-clamp, the vises sport brass fittings and interchangeable jaws and are fully rotational. But why spend that much on a gadget to hold a fishhook when you can simply weld an old vise-grip onto a post and stick it in a table?
It makes it a lot simpler, Albright remarks.
