Topics I've Started

New fly room seating

11 March 2017 - 12:28 PM

Along side my post on lighting I'm also looking at better seating for when I'm tying. Currently using a second hand office chair that isn't perfect.
We use chairs at work that have up/down and back in/out adjuster and I'm never comfy in these. Always feel like I require lumbar support that these chairs don't give.

What models, makes can folk recommend. Don't mind spending a bit if it will last years

Chance to start tying room from scratch.

10 March 2017 - 03:06 PM

Going to be moving house in a few weeks and have a naked garage ready to be converted to my new man cave. Primary use will be for fly tying/rig building. It has a window currently which won't receive too much direct light. Has anyone got any top tips on lighting for the whole space and more specifically around the tying area?

Currently I'm thinking of LED strips inside the window box sides so not directly shining at me when sitting but providing some background brightness. Then the 3 or 5 LED spots overhead the desk. With some type of overhead light for the remaining 150+ sq ft of space.

Well done Greenbay. Great performance. Big game coming up but fingers crossed its SUPER BOWL PACKERS!

Neoprene reel cover

22 December 2016 - 11:54 AM

Has anyone made their own? I have a pair of neoprene waders that are too uncomfortable to wear and was thinking of cutting them up and reusing the neoprene.
For reel cover is it just a case of lots of aquaseal or do stitches need adding too?

Sonic weld waders

22 December 2016 - 03:29 AM

Has anyone used and abused a brand of these sonic weld waders? Looking at the orvis guide silver sonic. Partly because of the orvis guarantee and partly because of their wading boots I have that are holding strong after 10yrs.
Prices here in UK mean Simms are off my radar as are the top Patagonia ones but I am still open to the traditional stitched brands.
Has anyone used the Patagonia skeena river ones??
