Fly tying can be a very rewarding part of fly fishing and the Norvise Fly Tying System makes tying flies even more rewarding with its revolutionary and patented design that helps you create flies smoothly, efficiently and quickly.
Designed by avid fly tier and research engineer, Norm Norlander, the Norvise not only turns the hook, it spins the hook in perfect alignment on the axis of rotation. The Norvise Bobbin allows for perfect thread control. It's always where you need it and never in the way. That's why, for decades, fly tiers have tied better flies, faster — with Norvise.
As experienced fly tiers know, the revolutionary rotary Norvise has advantages over other "rotary" vises. Combined, these advantages make the Norvise a tool of both art and science - yielding a lifetime of fly tying success.
Norvise positions the hook on a perfect rotational centerline, allowing the hook be spun, replacing tiresome hand-over-hand wrapping. With the shank of the hook always aligned to center, the material is "turned" or "spun" onto the hook. This is a real labor and frustration saver.
Body Material, Hackle and Dubbing
Precision ball bearing and heavy brass hubs enable Norvise to work like a spinning wheel for the world’s most fluid dubbing, creating perfectly shaped and textured bodies. Working thread, other body materials and hackle are applied better, faster and easier than by any other method.
The Norvise system accommodates several configurations, or "conversions" - all quickly and easily mounted onto the vise arbor. These configurations will handle nearly any fly tying situation - from tiny, delicate trout flies to large saltwater patterns - each different "configuration" excels in certain applications.
Norvise comes standard with the Small Straight Jaws. This is the most popular and versatile configuration. Includes a matching Thread Post, Mounting Bolts, Operating and Set-up instructions, Hex Wrench, and a hour-long instructional video.
