Default Fly tying lamp

I'm looking for your thoughts and suggestions on a dedicated fly tying lamp. Between my prescription readers and regular lighting, tying the size 14 and smaller flies seems to be more difficult. LED, halogen, help! Bob

If IKEA is convienet this is a good little lamp, especially for $10. Works pretty good as a spotlight for tying. I integrated one into the bench I built.

Chuck Morris turned me on to this sub-twenty-dollar light from Lowe's. It is bright and doesn't throw off a lot of heat:

The one that Drifter suggested also is available with a fixed base. I have one of each on my tying desk. I also carry a third clip on model with my tying travel kit. I highly recommend these lamps.

I just looked at Lowe's website and it appears that this particular model is no longer available. However, I was in a Lowe's not long ago and they have a very similar light for about the same price. It it also available in a clip on and fixed base.

I'm a big fan of OTT lights. The one I have Is an older version of this. With the natural light....it's amazing! I only paid like $60 at Michael's when I got it. Still running like a champ on the original bulb nearly 8 years later!
