Fly Tying-In real life

An upcoming fly fishing journey drove me to the fly tying bench this weekend.  As usual, I put off tying until right before I need to restock my fly box.

Over the years I've tried to organize the fly tying bench to look like the examples that you see in photos in the fly fishing magazines, orderly drawers of properly sorted hooks, beads, and materials.  The problem is, I can't find anything that way, and I take comfort in the piles that I inevitable create during the frenzied tying sessions before a trip.

I'll continue to try to organize, but in the event I never reach that goal, I'll be just fine...

  1. Your bench and fly box look like they are right of that magazine you mentioned. Especially compared to mine. My bench is 4 feet from where I'm sitting right now and I'd get lost finding it. When I look for my favorite fly I always start out looking at the back of the back seat of my Mariner. It's usually stuck there because I forgot to put it away.
