My fly tying room-revisited

Recommended Posts

A while back I posted pictures of my fly tying room in total disarray. Fearing that I may smeared my rep. by showing the room, here I submit new pictures of the room after having cleaned it up some. It took me a full three days to clean it up and it did cut into my fishing time but a think it was worth it.

2004? “trapper of the year” now that’s an accomplishment no matter who/where you are.  Would love to hear a FrankSynopsis of that.   Anybody that’s done any trapping knows that had to be some kinda hard work!  

 Oh, room looks great and looks like a wealth of tying stuff.  Dang stack of sorted vices...

I share a room right now and am about to get a new desk and some better storage for materials. Looking at a large L shaped desk right now I have to separate benches I made up together in an L shape but they are different hights. Might post a picture tomorrow.

 

Have a question though do you use any type of bug deterrent like cedar or moth balls/crystals in your bins for your natural hair/fur?

Nice Mark ☺️ Really cool drawers. Are those some sort of drafting/blueprint type draw/cabinets or ?

I will snap some pics tomorrow. Been awhile since I shared mine, has changed some over the past year now.

Looks great Mark!  Did you find anything cool (materials/tools) during the cleaning?  I spent a week cleaning our basement in preparation of our new boiler install and found all sorts of stuff.  Some of which was missing or forgotten about tools so it was great to find I still had them.  At the same time I was able to toss a lot of useless stuff in the trash or burn pile.

Nice Mark.  Though, will all that material, I think I could get lost in there for a day or two, in spite of all your cleaning, LOL.

Feel bad about having somewhat of a semi sorted mess around the roll top tying desk & bookshelves compared to your organized room....

Nicely done Mark, although my only critique would be your failure to maximize use of the available floor space as my space does on a daily basis😜

OK, you guys win.  Thanks for posting so that I could show my wife that I don't really have that much stuff!  I will post mine when I re-organize it.

Very impressive Mark.  Is that a GE Super Radio on the top of the desk?  Great old radios.  Hard to find anymore.
