It actually is made from spalted birch and it has a cork base to stop it from sliding( not a cover) The pen is 60 dollars My dad is actually a custom cabinet builder by trade and he is starting fly flishing line of furniture. ( he makes desks, bookcases,etc.) Charlie

  7. Hey all I have been looking around at all your fly tying desk,etc. I thought I would show you what my Dad and younger brother made me for my addiction. My Bro (13 Years old) turned me the dishes on a wood lathe (He has his own little business called pens by daniel) the dishes have rare earth magnets in them. My dad made the tool caddy and vise pedastool out of spalted birch. He also made me the fly boxes. He is working on a fly tying desk, with a spalted maple top
  8. Right now I keep mine in the newest fishpond tying bag which was 100 bucks but it is pretty small so I have a few other boxes now. but they do make a larger one for 160 bucks. But soon I am getting a desk so I will not need the bag unless I travel with it. hope this will help Charlie fishpondusa.com
  9. I got two packs of targus 1 x fine ( these are the ones I was talking about that are part of tiemco but filed in different place) But I hate them. Tiemcos 1 x fine dont bend this bad but targus hooks do. Charlie

I have been tying for 2 and a half years now and work with hackle alot. you said something about strung hackle. but the strung hackle is always way to big. but I think I mentioned before that I found wapsi dyed rooster necks do you know anything about this? Thanks for all your help. Charlie
