I am on a trip and brought tying paraphernalia with me, but I did not have space for a tying desk or even the tool caddy. So I made this one:

Super simple, definitely nothing fancy, but a reminder that you don't have to spend much if you are getting started.

Thanks for posting.

My old Renzetti foam block tool holder is now approx. $20 retail.

Scrap wood and drill press, nice.

Regards,
FK

Yeah, I tried to make one and my wife got really really mad when I drilled holes into the kitchen table.   That one looks way better than mine.

I don't get it... Isn't that what placemats are for...?

Interesting, I have never used a caddy nor found a need for one. That's just me though..


Still hunting for my first tarpon on fly! 


Why are windknots in love with me?


Can't wait for that diy trip to Acklins!!

Huh? How do you store your tools? Surely you use a caddy of one sort or another

I don't use one either PD, all my tools and thread and hooks and eyes glue etc live in an old tackle box.

That is what I brought with me on the trip, a small plastic tupperware with a selection of tools, but I found myself fumbling through two or three tools to get to the one I needed.
I am used to and like to have a caddy with my tools organized and within reach, even if it is a crappy like this one.

An old tackle box sounds like a tool caddy to me. An inefficient caddy but a caddy nonetheless.
