CFR is proud to announce that HMH Vises has signed on as an official Merchandising Partner with the renowned quality of life breast cancer program, recognizing CFR’s commitment to providing a life-changing experience that increases confidence, lessens isolation, and develops coping skills in women who have received a diagnosis of breast cancer.
John Albright, President of HMH Fly Tying Vises, notes, “We think that the solace and
exhilaration of fly fishing begins at the tying bench. Tying a fly is all about expanding one’s creativity, accepting and meeting challenges, increasing self-awareness, and knowing the solid satisfaction of making a beautiful thing.” Many women who experience the CFR program become engaged by the focus and creativity of fly tying.
HMH will donate to CFR $25 from the sale of every HMH Standard Vise (Model #1002-CFR, on right) and HMH Spartan Vise (Model #1001-CFR). (Be sure to include the CFR designation when you order the model.)
More information about these HMH vises can be found at their website. Other current CFR Merchandising Partners include L.L.Bean, Red Cabin Pottery, Temple Fork Outfitters, REC Components, American Laundromat Records, and Jim Teeny, Inc.
