Many people seem to have an issue with accidentally knocking the rear hub out of the lock position while tying. We know this can be frustrating and we are asked about this often. In the past, we would tell people to put some high tack wax on the shaft, keeping the hub locked.
These two screws will go in the threaded hole on the rear hub. Install one and thread it down until it LIGHTLY contacts the center arbor. This will put a little pressure on the arbor and tighten up the slide fit between the hub and arbor for a custom “feel” of tension on the rear hub. Once adjusted, thread the second screw in the hole on top of the first one to “lock” it into position. You can still use the turning handle as before. If your rear hub “clicks” while rotating the vise, these little guys will take care of that as well.
Very knowledgeable and extremely helpful, super friendly and great variety of product.
They've got anything you could need. It's a huge selection, which is surprising for a small town shop. They're amazing people and Collin can answer any questions you have. His knowledge is impressive.
I recently spent a weekend with a close group of friends fly fishing along with Colin and team - incredible preparation & professionalism, quality camp equipment and fishing gear and just a first class operation overall. I would and highly recommend RMFS to any and all fishing skill levels interested in enjoying themselves on the water. It was a really positive experience for our group.
Congrats to Colin and Tammy on the move to their new location in downtown Olds! The prices are fair, they have a great selection and the shipping is lighting fast. Best sticker offerings I have seen south of Red Deer as a kicker.
I had a fabulous lesson with Jordan from Rocky Mountain Fly Shop. We went out on the water and he tailored the lesson to my experience and skill level. We touched on casting, fly selection and an introduction to reading water. It was all hands on and I walked away with the confidence to try new things this summer. It was a perfect morning and I'll definitely do it again.
