HMH Tube Vise Converter
The Tube Vise Converter will easily convert your HMH vise with screw-in / screw-out jaws to an in-line rotary tube vise. It offers a whole new way to hold tubes by chucking them directly in the steel jaws.
Mount tubes with or without junction tubing installed; with or without pins/mandrels.
The sleeker design lets you take full advantage of the in-line rotary ability, and makes it easier to get materials on top, bottom, and sides of the pattern unencumbered by the tool holding the tube. Comes with two premium mandrels, sample tubes, and tube fly hook samples.

HMH Cut To Length Tubes ...for all fly patterns and conditions; most economical


HMH custom-designed Cut to Length Tubes are the most economical way to tie tube flies. Use our Rigid, Poly and Micro tubing to match any tying/angling challenge or application. You can quickly create your own custom tubes simply by cutting the length you need.


HMH Rigid Tubes


Rigid Tubes are designed for high hoop strength so they are great for deer hair patterns and other patterns that use bulky materials that require heavy tying pressure. The tube material is good for all but the coldest water.
Available in Lg (1/8") and Small (3/32") diameters.


Small Rigid Tubes are also available with a thicker wall (TW), for greater strength and better performance in cold conditions. TW tubes are 3/32 inch OD x 5" long, 10 pk. Requires .031" Pin.


$6.00, $4.00 for red and yellow

HMH Poly Tubes



Our Poly tubes are specifically designed to be tough and durable especially in cold water condition.  Poly tubes are semi-flexible and won't get brittle in cold water.  They are strong enough to stand up to large bulky patterns and have proven to be an excellent tube for winter steelhead.  Our Small Poly Tubes (3/32" OD) are good for large and small patterns.  Deadly HOT colors, and clear.

Each package includes 10, 5" single color pieces.





Hot New Colors


HMH Large Poly Tubes (1/8" OD) are especially versatile in that the larger ID will accept many hook eyes, so you won't need to use hookholder on many of your patterns. 
Our HMH Micro Tubing will nest perfectly with these tubes to create flies with standard drilled cone and bead heads or flies with smaller heads and tapered bodies. Each package includes 10, 5" single color pieces.

HMH Micro Tubing




Our Micro Tubing is durable and versatile.

It's a tough high-density polyethylene that comes in two wall thicknesses. Use Regular to line metal tubes or nest inside larger tubes (for making small heads, or adding cones).

Our Thick-Wall Micro tubing (requires .031" Dia pin) is tough enough to tie small patterns directly on the tubing - for example, small streamers or big nymphs. Most off-the-shelf cones and beads fit Micro Tubing.

Regular (1/16" OD X .042 ID), 36"piece. 


Thick-Wall (1/16" OD X .031 ID), 36" piece

Pre-cut aluminum and copper tubes in a range of lengths to match any tying/angling situation.

Line tubes with included Micro tubing. Add standard drilled cones or beads if desired. Hook Holder tubing also included.


Aluminum Tubes. 3/32" o.d. tubes sink slowly and drift naturally. Micro and Hook Holder tubing incl. 10 per pack.
