View Full Version : FLY Tying table
I am looking for a way to organize my fly tying materials. SOmething I can load all my stuff into and put under my desk, then when ready to use it, place it where I want. I saw in BPS catalog a nice one for $169.00 but that is a little steep right now. Anyone got any ideas? How about building one. It seems like all you need is wood and a drill and some nails or epoxy. Thanks for your input.

I built my own. Pretty easy too, using pre- cut poplar boards that Lowes sells. Can use oak too, for little more $. I've promised on the board before, to sketch it up. Just haven't gotten "a round tuit". Will try to get it done. Only runs about $20 in mat'ls.

I am also interested in making up a desk or fly tying table. I would like to be able to easily get to making up some flies, rather than getting all the stuff out and putting it away. My wife hates the stuff so I need to be able to pick it up and get it out of sight. I look forward to your plans Ole Man Thanks a lot. Pointer
I am new to tying (since Christmas) but I recently purchased a JW outfitters carrying case. It looks like a cordura briefcase but holds and organizes everything from my vise to hackle, hooks, threads,etc. It makes it real easy to set up and start tying wherever you are.

I bought a nice case that hold all MY tying equipment. (I know a lot of you have a lot more tying _stuff_ than I do) I bought it from a guy at the expo. He was between Unicoi Outfitters and Orvis. When I dig out his card, I'll post it.
It's nice. Your vise can mount on the side and you can tie either with the case open and all of you materials exposed, or closed. When closed, the top part is lipped to keep your materials from falling.
Enough rattling on until I find the guy's card.
I would also like to see a diagram or pattern to use to make a desktop fly tying box. Thanks to anyone who might post one..

The name of the company you bought the tying case from is Pockit Sports. Some of his stuff can be viewed at this address:

Am working on the drawings for the one I built. Should finish this week. Sorry, this is not a box. It is a tying station 1x2 feet that will hold 24 spools , 14 tools , a clamp vise and a pedestal vise such as a Renzetti which is what I use. As far as storing hackle, fur, etc. I use Rubbermaid tool boxes for that. Ole Man

HI EVERYBODY, THIS IS AN AGE OLD PROBLEM. FOR ABOUT TEN YEARS I'VE BEEN USING A LARGE TACKLE BOX FROM PLANO. IT HAS AN OPEN TOP WITH DRAWERS ON THE BOTTOM. IT IS STILL BEING MADE. IT'S WORTH TAKING A LOOK AT. GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR SEARCH.
