Jvice was invented and is hand-built by Jay Smit whose shop is located in Durban, KZN South Africa. The vice itself is very rugged yet beautifully machined. It features a "gooseneck" design for the main shaft (as seen above) which allows very easy access. With your hand nestled very nicely in the crook of the gooseneck, it allows your fingers to be in the best position for holding a wing. This vice is not just for salmon flies but is optimized to tie all types of flies in all sizes all the way down to midges.
