Default Peak Vise Owners: Get the Midge Jaws!

I bought my Peak vise from Richard at Gypsy Outdoors (from ebay), and finally
bought the midge jaws last week. WOW! What a difference! I had been using
the standard jaws for hooks as small as #20, but had to use the upper corner
of the jaw. The midge jaws allow a #20 bend to go from top to bottom of the
jaw, and grip MUCH better than I had expected. They are also much easier
to install than I expected, taking a little more than one minute. You simply
grap one of the c-clips with hemostats to remove, and slide the pin
out. The standard jaws slide right out, and the midge slide right in. There is
a little grub screw that get loosened, but that's so quick it's hardly worth
mentioning. Richard has the best price on these jaws BTW, and his shop is
on the same street as the Peak company. $35 shipped, and I'm happy. !

Frank: Yes, I agree, I bought the midge jaws awhile back and have really enjoyed tying with them. It is really nice for those small midge patterns.
