    Chris: I don't have to worry about the wife, she doesn't like coming in my tying room/computer room, she says it is too messy (and she is right). My problem is keeping the stray hooks out of my foot. Seems like half the time they plop on the rug, they just flat disappear........I try to remember to wear sandels when I'm anywhere near the fly tying desk.

    Kerry: I'm not familiar with the product you are talking about, where do you get it?

    Larry I think you can find it at sewing shops or Wal-Mart. It is a roll of magnetic material with a peel-off back. It sticks pretty well, though it doesn't seem to do any damage to my desk when it is peeled off.
    Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.

    Thanks Kerry, next time I'm at Wally World I will see if I can find it. It would be nice to have a second layer of defense!

    The one that drives me crazy is to put three hooks near my vice, do a few things, look back and there are only two. Where do they go?
    I often find them in my socks.

    Hi Everyone,

    I did the same thing that ant did and so I got a Renzetti TOOL CADDY. It is made from a soft foam and doesn't move around he table. I kept my cement in the caddy. If I want to pick up the head cement I just pick up the whole caddy. You can do the same thing with a piece of packing foam or old foam bed mattress.

    to keep my tools sorted.....my bench i have an old style top where I drilled holes to put my tools in....see the front lip on the wooden box with lid....my tools stand up...never in my way and always visible

    Oh ya...why is is that wives always get hooks in their feet....my tying desk is outside in a 10'x7' metal shed...heated and lit...but OUTSIDE non the less...and she still gets them .....at least I know where to look for them
    if I'm not here...I'm on another line...with a fly on the end..

    That caddy looks great. Looks like I have a date with some styrofoam.

    Sitting back and watch as a nice night of tying turn into a night of muttering curses because you grabbed your hook storage box wrong and they all spilled out on to the carpet. It only gets more fun from there as you try and find/dig them out of the carpet and put them in their proper place again.

    I was tying a pattern called an Invicta the other day and when I finished I was picking the dubbing out and snapped the tinsel rib. I posted my best goof fly tying a while back, but.... I was tying a clouser and went to reach for something. The hook was in the vise point up. I jammed it into my forearm clear to the bend. I picked up my tying station with it. The fly was done and just needed the head cement to dry. I ended up pushing it through and cutting off the barb. Wrecked the fly.
