Joann Fabrics has Ott lights new at 50% off with coupon on a regular basis for anyone looking. Their coupons usually say things like % off one item,or % off whole purcase. Tying is still fun but very time consuming so I'm in the process of making a new rack to hold my threads and other spooled things. Trying to keep more things close at hand so I don't have to be diggng boxes out. I'll post a picture when I'm done. My space is pretty compact and has lots of stuff in the storage but I'm needing things easier to get to because I'm getting slower and awkward because of my Parkinsons. I'm thinking this change will realy be a help. The frame will attach to the white set of drawers on the right side and clear up a little space from the left bookcase. I need about 10 more strips to fill it out that I'll have to buy. So far it was all scrap I had. OOPs didn't mean to get the other two pics of the lanyards. The two pics of my tying area on the bottom are the new way my area looks. I haven't even used it but I think the new thread rack is great, and I 'll use it most of today so I"ll find out soon. I reallly like my rack for spooled items hanging on the plastic set of drawers. I haven't gotten the moulding strip I need to finish out the rack but will soon. I'll have 11 more strips for spooled items And then more shelf space tooI also have abig plastic tub i the garage that is full of pheasant tails and turkey feathers and others and two smaller tubs in my closet that are full of yarn skeins.
Whats the glass vase looking like thing used for?
good times! Like wow brah! That fly is psychedelic
Also known as "Dude, where's my bobbin?"

New materials and tying space added to my arsenal. Just received this from my girl's brother in law. It belonged to a friend of his that passed recently and he decided that I should have it. I am unbelievably honored to have been presented with this from his friend's fly fishing gear collection. I can't wait to take it on a trip somewhere.[/IMG]
What a gift! You'll put it to good use, and that's what any of us would want, right? Very cool.
and love the view

I just took a few pics of the things I use for storage most at my tying desk. I hate having things hard to get. The smaller boxes on the lower right are the ones I carry to fish, and the black bag in back is my bulk storeage that I may take along. All of the rest is part af my tying desk set up.
Thanks, Bob. After looking at your pics I borrowed your nifty dubbing storage technique. I should have looked at the pic more closely though. I drilled my holes in the top of the plastic container, then later noticed that yours are drilled from the bottom (a much better idea).
Thanks Jeff glad to share ideas. That's why I like to post Pictures,I just wish my tying was better but I have fun and that's the best part. Happy Fishin!!
