Fly Tying Desk Plans & photos

Guys I've been tying flies on an old oak roll top desk but it puts the vice so high, it's actually hurting my arms and shoulders to tie on it. That said, I'm wanting to have a fly tying desk built. ...

Richardson Chest Pack

Guys, do any of you own, or have you used a Richardson Chest Pack? Joe Humphreys I believe uses one. Don't know that I'd be a fan of a chest pack like this but I like to get good stuff and then...

Thanks for the info Chechem. I guess I've been overlooking these flies but will get that corrected. And it gives me an excuse to tie up something different too! Harry Crabtree

BrentwoodVFL, man we are close so we will have to try to hook up (no pun intended) sometimes. I have never really considered fishing the Harpeth but maybe that was a mistake on my part. Harry

Size foam

I think it was Daniel over at LRO that told me a good rule of thumb for the foam on a NeverSink Caddis was to cut it "about a hook gap wide, maybe just a bit wider". But on the length, I try it make...

How may flies?

Slider, you can't have too many flies can you? If you can, don't tell my wife!

As far as Smoky patterns, on the LRO website they try to help answer that by breaking flies down into Winter,...
