Scenes from the tying desk

I was staring at the tying desk this morning before the daily grind of conference calls started. There's actually a bit of poetry to the layers and chaos of scraps and materials on the desk. I thought I'd share. As you can see, estaz has been a key ingredient recently. Fifteen days until the Steel.

Estaz, Estaz, Estaz, & McFlyFoam

The thing that binds it all together

Okay, I admit it, I have a wire problem.

Rabbit, Estaz & McFlyFoam. What could be better?

For my little friends in Pulaski


  1. Beautifully shot - and beautifully timed as in the next few days I'll be setting up my new tying desk as well. For now, it's all still in moving boxes.

    Poetry indeed. THANKS for the inspiration!

  2. Thx, Mike. Good lord, I can't even imagine trying to pack up all this crap.

  3. Mine looks very similar right now. Is it just me, or is tying simple egg flies for steel...therapeutic?

    I think I love estaz.

  4. Looks familiar....and looks like a hell of a lot of fun!

  5. E.J.: Excellent! Yeah, Eggs rule. Turn off brain. Tie. Cut. Repeat.

    Sanders: The joys of tying!
