A look at McNeese's desk. I can not function in this environment, but you can't argue with his amazing results.

That's how I roll, too. Only place in my house I allow it.

I love seeing all the materials out. I just can't operate that way. I'm overly organized, plus I fear bug infestations.

This is my tiny tying room (box behind chair is new TV for room). My regular working materials bagged, boxed and shelved. I store my secondary working materials in an adjacent guest bedroom (material sorting room) with cedar closets and two 3'x8' tables. My bulk materials are stored in a finished basement on stainless restaurant shelving. I bag/vacuum pack everything.

I can't do disorganization at all.
All my materials are bagged and stored in drawers.
I grab the materials I need and then back they go. Then again, I do tie on the couch, chair, at the dining room table, outside patio, etc. If I leave it laying around, Mrs. Flyer will read me the riot act and that would be the last time I tie in the nice areas of the house
I almost had my tying room back ... then my oldest decided to move back in


Mike

Have you Swung a Spey Fly today ??

Shannon,

Does Mr. McNeese have a fly tying book or two that you recommend? I always loved his style! He is really talented.

Nate

Bring the swing.

You'd have a stroke if you stepped into my studio.

Dave tied the steelhead flies in Mike Valla's "Tying and Fishing Bucktails and other Hair Wings: Atlantic Salmon Flies to Steelhead Flies" and did a step by step tying Brad's Brat. Also in the book are photos of how he gets those tiny little heads. He surely ties a beautiful fly.

Alas, when it comes to fly tying, this is about the ONLY thing where I am even close to being on the same level as Mr. McNeese. They do say a cluttered workspace is a sign of genius and creativity. :-)

Mine looks much the same. The key is a gentle turn over. Deer and moose parts slowly rotate into bird parts which slowly rotate into rabbit and marabou parts which slowly go back to deer/moose parts. Such is the cycle of life....
