One day I was working the Bass Pro Shops Spring Fishing Classic as a Pro for a couple of different companies (I don't want to name names because I have since left those companies in the dust but one of them rhymes with "Poomis") and I was in need of a new fly tying vise. What is really cool about working those shows is that Bass Pro gives you an employee discount on anything in the store....time to buy a vise. So while chatting with one of the employees in the Fly Shop at Bass Pro about vises he was a stong proponent of Renzetti. So I sit down and tie a fly on a Renzetti (which I had done before) nothing special, kind of cool looking....lets try another vise. So I walk over to the set of vises and I see this burly, brass, stainless steel, aircraft grade aluminum, BEEFY vise and say "I have to try that one." Turns out it was a Peak. Made in Loveland, Colorado these vises are absolutely bomb-proof, yet smooth as a babies butt. Since then (over 5 years ago) whenever anyone sees me tying with my Peak they always ask about it and my #1 answer is "I feel like I can defend my family with this vise.....and then turn around and tie a #16 Parachute Adams with it."
Not long ago I get a call from Al Ritt of Peak. They had seen some of the tying videos that I have been making and noticed that I tie on a Peak....one thing led to another and he asked if I would be interested in joining the Peak Pro Team. What, am I going to say "No"? So, here we are, directly below April Vokey herself on the Pro list.
