Default Picture of your fly tying bench and organizing methods

Just what the title says. I am new to fly tying and I am just looking for some organizing ideas for my own set up.
I have been keeping it simple so far. some wooly buggers, black nose dace, clouser minnows in various sizes and colors and really trying to get some of the basics down.
So, any advice on organizing would be great. There are several "I am just starting out" threads so I will lurk on them for start up advice.

Thanks in advance

This is what I have so far
I like to keep my work area clear except for materials I need for the fly I am tying-if kit I get pretty unorganized.
Any other suggestions?

I didn't go back through the thread and some posts are a couple years old but there are a bunch of tying stations on it I know. I think my little corner is even there. Some of the fellows are incredibly organized.

Having just finished installing and putting the finish on the floor, had plans to put the rolltop desk back together (fly tying station) when the girls informed me they were using that space for the Christmas tree.

Default Re: Picture of your fly tying bench and organizing methods

I can't post a picture of my bench and organizing method because 1) I don't have a camera, 2) even if I did, I tie at our dining room table and clear everything off when I'm done, and 3) I don't have an organizing method. I have my vise and some tying materials in a nylon case I got from HMH (along with my vise, an HMH Spartan), and my fly tying materials and tools in one of those divided plastic organizer thingys. That all goes on a shelf in one of our closets when I'm not tying.

I am very envious of the benches posted in this thread. There are some beautiful set-ups here. One day, when I'm retired, I'll have a devoted bench and fishy "corner" of a garage or workshop or some place where all of my fishing tackle and fly tying stuff is kept and organized.
