HMH announces Casting for Recovery vises

We here at HMH are happy to be a partner with Casting for Recovery and to help support their important and good work. Casting for Recovery is a quality of life survivorship program that provides opportunities for women whose lives have been profoundly affected by breast cancer to gather in beautiful, natural settings at retreats that incorporate counseling, educational services, and the new sport of fly fishing to promote physical and mental healing.

The defining element of fly fishing is the fly. Tying a fly and then catching and releasing a fish on that fly adds immeasurably, we think, to the fly fishing experience. We're very pleased to be able to help the women of CFR enjoy this added dimension of fly fishing.

HMH will donate $25 to CFR for every HMH/CFR vise sold.

For more information about Casting for Recovery, see

Please ask for these vises at your local dealer or go to for more information.

It's Back!

The HMH Exhibition Vise is back.

You asked for it, we listened. The Exhibition Vise has all the same great features as the HMH Standard - infinite head angle adjustment, ultra smooth 360ยบ rotary action, hand polished stainless steel chassis, smooth disc drag rotary tension adjustment, quick change jaw feature and pure good looks. We've dressed the Exhibition out with a finely polished, solid brass base and our large nickel plated cam lever.

We certainly don't stop there with this package. The Exhibition Vise comes complete with all three HMH jaws (Micro, Omni, and Magnum), our tube conversion tool (converts your vise into the best in-line rotary tube vise available), bobbin rest, profile plate, c-clamp and HMH tyer's tool bag. In other words, everything you need to tie any size, type and style of fly. The rest is up to you..
