this is how my tying area is set up
5 foot plastic folding table from the big box "w" store
the oasis tying bench. this bench has too many drilled holes in it. 30% of the holes have
no purpose being there. i discovered this after placing all of my stuff into it.
then i added rubber feet to the tying bench. helps the bench from sliding
added a couple of cup holders for storing my hackle pliers. in addition to the cup holders i also
capped off the tip of the brass pins brass pins that hold the thread spools. the tip were sharp from the
factory cutting them and i would occasionally scratch my arm reaching for something. i also removed a
few pins that were really in the way
on the right side of the table i have a tray that holds my liquids and uv resin stuff
a couple of item to hold the finished flies
on the left side i store my long feathers in a vase. whatever kind it doesnt matter
a box for my acrylic paints
a food container with a lid for holding trimming and waste. yes, i could easily place a waste bin near me or
even between my legs but ive done it this way for 30+ years of tying so why ruin a good thing
old habits are hard to break!
the entire setup
i have 3 windows in my room that face north so i doubt any light will affect any feathers in the vase. plus the
blinds are usually closed when i'm tying. i dont need the NSA seeing what i'm tying. they already spy on us enough
i place 2 lights 1 one each side of the bench. these will be thee for taking photos of flies
this is MY setup and does not reflect in any way how you should set up your area.
be creative. experiment
