Hand Held Vise for Small Flies

Recommended Posts

This is in that category called "I wish I thought a that." My uncle was an avid fly fisherman who always brought a small kit of materials and tools along on every fishing trip. He could match the hatch when the trout were being selective. I wish he knew about this tip from a recent Hatches issue. He always brought along a full sized vise.


A standard Exacto knife makes a good hand held vise. Remove the blade, insert the hook, and tighten. They say it will work with size 6 and smaller hooks.
