Durable. Simple. Beautiful.
The HMH Standard vise has basically been in production since 1975. This is the updated original that with improved chassis/bearing system for better collet support, better rotation, and infinite head angle adjustment. All parts are precision-machined and carefully finished using top-quality stainless and tool steels and brass. Each vise is individually hand fitted and tuned for maximum performance.
The Jaw System allows you to change from micro, magnum to omni. The micro jaw is one of the thinest/smalliest micro jaws available allowing you to create the smallest of flies. While the Magnum is a great saltwater jaw that ties the biggest of hooks. The Omni Jaw is the standard universal jaw tying a wide range of freshwater, bass, salmon and light saltwater hooks. ( The Magnum and the Micro are sold separately. )
If you’re looking for the finest in comfort and stability that comes with a full-size vise, not to mention dependability, speed, versatility, and tying elegance, then you can’t own a better tool for tying than the HMH Standard. Made in Maine by America’s Oldest Premium Vise Company.

Note By Mike Hogue: The HMH is the first premium vise, I purchased when I started tying commercial flies. I’ve owned my HMH for over 30 years and it has never failed. I’ve tied thousands of flies on it. The Standard is used in many commercial fly factories as the vise of choice. Due to its straight forward design and simple lines. Rock solid, built to last a lifetime. Like a great rod or reel, this is a fantastic tool.
