Fly Tying

Show your bench

Recommended Posts

So, the wife and I bought a place in upcountry SC nearer to our lovely trout streams. (see spring fever post).

One of the joys of the new place is a blank canvas for a tying room.

Here's what I've been able to do to date.

From bank space, layout for a higher bench (I find I have a tendency to crouch at my "normal tying desk")

Prep and layout

Bench and initial clutter.

So the photos didn't line up as I sequenced them, But I'm sure you can follow along.

And tied the first dozen flies from size 4 down to these 14, 16, and 18's.

Off to a roaring start! Up country as compared to low country? I always hear the term low country used in the Hilton head area.

we live in North Myrtle Beach, not as "low" as Hilton Head but still the low country!

Noahguide,

I can hear it like it was yesterday... "Go to the corner and you stay there until I say you can come out!!!"  

If your corner was in my world back then,  I wouldn't have any problem with going there.
