Another raffle item soon to come is an Enrico Puglisi vise. Here is a description of the vise in his own words. "After more than a year of collaboration with my good friend Graziano Magrini from Italy, I am proud to introduce the new GME VISE. Graziano is not only an exceptional fly fisherman and fly tier, but he is also one of the finest machinists that I have ever had the pleasure to know. His work is very well known. All of you know me and when it comes to quality and practicality I do not compromise. The new GME VISE will speak for itself and I am very proud to introduce it to you. The new GME VISE is not only both exceptionally well machined and practical, but also extremely elegant.
