Default Re: Flytying tips and techniques.......

As far as the hook storage/dropping an open plastic container... you can get those weekly pill boxes from a drug store. Each "day" or hook size opens independently of the others, so while you tie one size you don't need to worry about mixing various sizes/styles.
For dubbing containers, poke/drill a hole into old film canisters. You can then pull small bits of dubbing out as you need it.
Drier lint can be made/mixed into specific colors as a cheap way to make your own dubbing. I have also made a few "Daisy" nymphs(-the dogs name), with my dog's hair.
There is a real cool website with tons of tips for tiers and specifically organization... I'll track it down and get back to you.
