Fly Tying Bench - EricF

Comment on This Bench

Hey Folks, Cleaned up my fly tying desk ... kinda sorta ... and thought I'd post my pix. First of all, thanks to everyone who posted their pix - I appreciate seeing everyone's ideas and I've adopted some of them into enhancements in my desk. The desk is a door - my dad and I made this ... in the '70's as a "lab desk" for when I was doing entomology as a young lad. It is a perfect desk for fly tying as I don't get worked up when I spill head cement on it or superglue a fly to it. One thing that is nice about it is that I've marked standard measurements on the edge of the desk - so when I tie leaders I can easily measure out the length of the various steps.. I've always liked the "fly tying stations" that folks have - that hold tools, etc., but as you can imagine from my desk, I don't like being confined to a space - so I made stepped tool holders that are free floating - so I can move them around as I see fit. Made them out of a white cedar 2x4 I had laying around... The last two pix I really like - first is a picture my dad gave me - him showing me how to fish in California - back in the 60s... The second my sister gave me - same quote - she and I fishing about 5 years ago. Both those pix make me smile. Cheers and thank you all for a great forum. -E
