Lawrence Waldron is recognised world-wide as one of the premiere designers of fly tying vices. His name is legendary amongst international fly tiers and his vices have a classic simplicity of design, which sets them apart from their peers.
The Snowbee-Waldron Vice offers the advanced fly tier faultless engineering precision coupled with a silky smooth operation. Its appeal is its simplicity:
Superbly CNC engineered to tolerances of less than 0.01mm using 303 grade Stainless Steel, aluminium and CR12 tool steel for the jaws, hardened to Rockwell C 58
The main head axle runs on two sealed stainless steel ball-race bearings
Tension for the 360° rotating head is by means of a tension screw at the rear, operating on two delrin washers
The vice jaws are joined to the main head by means of a simple link-arm
Two Allen screws allow setting up of the jaws for total rotational symmetry about the centre line, irrespective of the hook gape
The precision jaws feature two precisely milled grooves to allow different sized hooks to be held securely - from as small as #30’s right up to large single Salmon irons and the largest saltwater fly hooks available
Supplied with a purpose designed carrying bag and allen key adjuster tools

Snowbee Waldron Integral Tube Fly Attachment £69
If you have a requirement for tying tube flies the Snowbee Waldron Vice can be easily converted by replacing the standard vice head with the Waldron Integral Tube Fly attachment. The central tube pin locks in place by means of a small screw and compression is then applied to the tube by means of the reverse threaded ‘Cone’ head and locking collar. The cone head features a fine parallel tip, which allows the tube to be held in position with the silicone sleeve already in place, making it the perfect choice for professional tube-fly dressers.
