Default Fly tying room?

What does your fly tying room/corner/desk/kitchen table/box, look like?

I spent a very long time tying on the fly (pun intended ) I had boxes and containers and ziplocks. I had them sourta organized for certain fisheries. Instead of having a container full of bucktail, or marabou or hooks and thread, I had a "bugger box", a "clouser box", a "stonefly box", a "comparadun box"... on and on it went. Since I was a fisheman of habbit, it worked OK. The trouble was when I wanted to experiment with a new pattern, I'd have to get out each box with the correct component that usually turned into a "miscilaneous box". All of this was rolled out onto the kitchen table, much to the dismay of my wife and the delight of my cat! It all actually worked quite well for me.
But that was then, this is now...
When I moved to wisconsin from southern oregon, I found the winters to be a drag and I needed to find ways to stay busy. We got a house with a basement and I went to work on making my dream come true

Disclaimer... It never looks like this anymore... I'm kinda messy

I certainly can't compete with that so I won't post a pic

My room layout suits me just fine

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.

Default Re: Fly tying room?

Very nice but far too organized for me, I would have all the hooks on the pegboard empty in a week and never know where I got it all from. I have seen other tying rooms set up similar and have always marveled at the focus it must have taken to build it up like this.

Very cool,

Ard

Thanks Ard. I see youre in Alaska. You probably know what its like to be snowed in and have cabin fever? This organization was a result of snow, bordom and time. I should probably take a picture of it right now so you can see how organized it is.

Jbird, that's an awesome setup you have!

I've been working on mine, but don't seem to ever have the time to get in there & do what I want. My tying room is also my tackle room, meaning I have everything, spinning, baitcasting, trolling, surf & fly tackle all in the one room.

Perhaps I'll get it organized someday before I leave this world!

Here's my hook wall. As you can see, I have some lures hanging there as well.

Most of the hooks are for bass or saltwater, and there's some I'll dress for lures there also.

I haven't even started trying to get materials hung up. The rest of the walls have lures of various types, which I'm sure no one here wants to see!

My room's in the basement. My wife doesn't like spiders or cave crickets, both of which inhabit my basement, so she stays out of there.
