when Tyler is bored he sneaks down to my house to take pic's...this is my room...
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
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....
