Default Tying table

I had read that they have portable flytying tables. I was wondering if this would be a good investment instead of trying to fight with the kids and cats over the kitchen table? And where would be a good place to purchase table. Thank you.

It's a lot easier to make one, All you need is some wood & pegs, & wood screws.....I just made this one a few weeks ago. Everything fits on top of it
& if you have to move it you can....

Thank you, That table looks great. Does it sit on a table or does it have legs?

This one sits on a table... you can just put it on a portable table anywhere you want. A buddy of mine modified one of those giveaway humidors from Thompson Cigars & mounted his vise to the lid. He put a rail with holes on top of it, Mounted his vise to the lid, & he keeps tools & stuff inside it.

FWIW, if you don't have the time/inclination to make your own, you might take a look a the Oasis Fly Factory (Oasis seems to be the major manufacturer of fly-tying desks). I just bought one after looking at a number, both in store and online (including eBay). For under $80, this seemed to be well-featured at a reasonable price.

I use my father-in-laws old drafting table (he was an architect). It's about 6 ft long and 4 ft deep. I have it supported on two sawhorses. I like the openess of that set-up; everthing where I need it and nothing to get in the way of arms, knees, feet, etc. Coupled with a comfortable swivel chair, I think it's hard to beat. And, a 4x6' piece of plywood or pressboard and two sawhorses is a pretty inexpensive way to get into a comfortable tying table.

If you're lucky enough to have the room . . .

Hi flyfisher45,

Here is a 4' folding table that I use. The picture shows a 4 pack but it is available as a single table. The top is polyethylene and is very ridged. The legs fold up into the top and are easy to store. The table is 24" wide and comes in 2' to 8' lengths. I got mine from Sam's Club but they are available from other sources.

Frank
