Cool Trying To Keep Busy

Like everyone else I'm doing what I can to keep busy during our crazy times. Can't really go anywhere or do anything that I would like to be doing right now. The combination of restricted movement orders and my recovery from spine surgery forces me to spend more time over the vise. Not a bad thing, but I can think of about 20 other things I'd rather be occupying myself with...all of them with a fly rod in hand!!!

Anyway here is what I'm working on at the moment. Should be done in the next day or so...but at the pace I tie classics there is never any kind of guarantee on scheduling.

George, thanks for the glimpse into your space
Patience my friend. As you know with tying classics, patience is required to acquire the skill of feather placement and selection.
The same patience is needed to get us through this my friend. We are all feeling the same. However the posts within these pages help pass time.
Nothing wrong with tying flies my friend. I'm stuck working at home, so no tying. I'm thankful to be working, but envious of all who are tying.

I look forward to your finished fly George


Mike

Have you Swung a Spey Fly today ??

Thanks Mike...I always enjoy seeing someone's tying space from the neat and clean to the feather and fur pile.

Patience is definitely the key with these flies, and as a tyer who is a bit of a putterer over the vise, they suit my easy going attitude well.

Stay safe and be well my friend...and a Happy Easter to you as well. The same goes for Passover if that applies.

George

Both very nice desks for tying, fellows.

Thanks for sharing.

I like those drawers on both desks.

Great tying area Cameron. What got my attention was 2 things...it is well organized and the shades over the windows which can easily be raised to allow for good natural sunlight when tying...and as someone has to have good light for this kind of work that is most impressive. The layout of my office only allows for outdoor natural sunlight from behind. Better than none at all that's for sure.

Now I have to finish the fly - LOL
