I just received this vise from my friend John Paullus. John is a great machinist! John was behind the Carpenter Bros reels. I hope to have a new series of reels sometime in the future.
I haven't tied in several years, but I have big plans to start this winter. I am probably like most tiers I have enough materials to make enough flies for the rest of my life. Maybe if I ever get caught up on my orders. :-)
