Default ProLite Tying Lamp

Hey Gang



Does anyone have any experience with the ProLite Tying Lamp? (ProLite Dual Headlight Lamp | Rite Bobbin ) dual light or magnifier. I am realizing that I need a light more and more when tying flies. Any help would be appreciated!

Bill: I haven't but it looks like it might be a good lamp for tying. Personally, I use an Ott-Lite (the floor stand model) that the quilters love due to the near natural light it puts out.

+1 to Larry's post.

Get some kind of Ott Lite. They will always be in business and you will be able to get replacement parts and bulbs just about everywhere. Wait for a 50% off coupon from JoAnnes or Michaels.

Personally, I use the portable version (first photo) so I can take it with me on fly fishing trips and when I give tying demos. For a fixed base model, the ones with a flexible neck allow you to position the lamp just about at any level and angle.

Here some photos of the Ott Lite that I grabbed off the net.

YOUR way is not the ONLY way when tying flies!

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

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