A Few Other Fly Tying Projects

Post  Charlie G. on 12/10/2012, 3:08 pm

I love working with wood so I thought what other projects I could do rather then just tie up a few flies for fishing buddy's.

I figured why not make them a tying station from wood I had laying around the man cave.
Below are the 2 tying stations I've made so far.

The bases are old long leaf pine flooring I had left over from doing a bedroom in my house and the top rails are Tiger maple. I put a hand rubbed finish of shellac and wax on both the stations.

I made this station for Handyman. I hope it helps him sit and do some more tying in the coming year.





Last week I finished this one for JeffL as he likes to sit and tie up teasers and tail hooks for plugs at night while in the chat with some of us members. Merry Christmas Jeff lol!



If your wondering what the wheel on the dowel rod is, it's for holding the flash used in tying. You just put the bundle of flash under the bungee to hold it onto the wheel which spins around.

I hope they both get many years of enjoyment out of them. And keep tying guys.
