This is a table-top fly tying stand that I made for my youngest son for Christmas a few years ago. It is made from figured maple and mahogany. The overall dimensions are 34”W x 24”D x 15”H. It is my own design, developed from looking at pictures of other stands.

Great job on both the design and the construction—your son is a very lucky man! From what I can see, your stand looks very well thought out, including the shallowed out front area that I would use to hold a few hooks while tying. Thanks for sharing a cool project—from one fly tier to another!

Very very nice. What do you fly fish for?

Edit: and I meant what kind of fish, not why do you fly fish :-)

Don – Thanks. Here in Montana we have some of the best fly fishing in the world for a variety of trout species. Come on out and give it a try!

I used to fly fish for trout her in the NE. but then I used to do a lot of things. That was back when there was more than 24 hours in a day. I’m almost afraid to take the orvis rod out of the case. As a mater of fact, I hope its still in the case!

Bob

That is one beautiful desk, I really like the overall design, but the fish , or fishes, on the top really sets of off. I am a fly fisher and fly tier and need to improve my desk, actually need to do more fishing.
