One of the most important things with any fly tying vise is stability. In any tying we must make sure the hook stays where we put it and does not move throughout the tying sequence. Aside from the jaws needing to hold the hook firmly, the vise itself should be "rock" solid and not move on the table. Our Norvise Granite Base is a great way to accomplish this and look fantastic while doing it. These milled and polished granite slabs weigh in at around 22 pounds. They come with our Norvise Waste Basket and are a great addition to any tying bench. Don't take our word for it, see what the boys at Fish Alaska Magazine have to say abut our Granite bases.
Available in many colors, we are sure to have a base to fit your needs. Check them out HERE. Till next time...

We recently had the honor of being written up in Fish Alaska Magazine. Norvise and Fish Alaska have a long relationship that goes way back. George, the editor and author of the article and Norm were friends. Maybe that is why the article has a personal feel to it. Thank you George for writing the article and than you Fish Alaska for being such a great partner.
This is a very proud moment for us here at Norvise. We are honored that our new Magnum Brass Hubs have been chosen for an Editors Choice Award from Fish Alaska Magazine. Here is what they wrote;
Norvise Magnum Hubs are bigger, thus 40% heavier than standard hubs, and they spin a little longer and with more momentum than the standard hubs. Our tester has used these for the past several months and comments he doubts he will go back to the standard hubs. All three Norvise jaw configurations will fit in Magnum Hubs.
We are so humbled that one of our products have been chosen to receive this award. It is really cool for Norvise to have received this award. You have probably heard me say this before, machining is the best trade in the world! In what other career can you take an idea from your head, draw it on a computer, turn raw material into a finished product and then win an award for it. I am so proud to be able to do just that.
Thank you to Fish Alaska Magazine for choosing us for this award. It really means a lot to us!
