Billy,

I don't doubt you may have things you've forgotten somewhere in there :)

Jockiescott that's brilliant.

I think I now know why you're not posting flies in January and February now, or is there a space heater hiding out of sight?:thumb:

You've hit the nail on the head GK. :lol:

These cold evenings it's too nice sitting in front of the open fire even to think of going out to the cold of the shed. There is a heater in there but one of two things usually happens with it. I either switch it on when I go the shed and the place is only heating when I'm ready to leave again or I switch the heater on for half an hour before going out and then something comes on the TV and I forget about it. :lol:

Would be good to get a desk started again but don’t know if the wife would allow it again ???

I am not in the same league as some of the guys on here, but I've got a wooden writing desk which I use as a fly tying desk, and I can hide everything away from prying eyes (i.e. my wife) when not in use!

Great thread folks, I really enjoyed reading it.

I recently got back into tying after a very long break and like Aled, I invested in a bureau desks. It is a lot nicer than having to take everything out of a large tool box, one of the many excuses putting me off getting back into it. I have had a few sessions at it and it works really well, everything easy to hand is a massive help! I need to invest in a little display stand now for drying flies :)

I use this bench. Made in Poland, delivered to Europe as I know. Price around 160 eur shipped if remember well. It is really good piece of wood :) made of elm wood I believe.

I like the way you re-organized your room. For me, it seems even larger, after you replaced your furniture. Even placing another drawer on a top, visually creates more free space. Besides, now you have a lot of storage places where you can keep your stuff. At the moment, I’m turning one of the bedrooms into my home office. I think I can borrow a few ideas from you. I have already chosen a new desk and a chair on furnicraft-ae.com. I just had no idea how to organize my storage space. I have a lot of different collections and some other stuff that randomly lies all over my desk.

When I consider the benefits of tying my flies, one inherent result emerges, which is the fundamental basis of doing the work myself. There is no better feeling than catching a fish on a fly that you have tied – period. When I can see a fish on a fly that I have made myself, I feel I am completing the circle of casting, catching, thinking, and preparing. There are undoubtedly many times where tying flies will be next to impossible, even for veteran tiers. There are undoubtedly many excellent aspects of tying one’s flies whenever possible, as well as genuine benefits.
