I tie flies all year. Many days each week I will sit at my tying bench with our old cat, Missie,for company producing patterns that I know are successful in catching fish. These are usually from publications (books or fishing magazines) or I make up my own!
My tying bench is really an old computer work station with a separate shelf under the main top, not very elegant but convenient to sit at and well lit by an overhead light. I have all my tools and materials to hand and time flies quickly by!
