My only experience with fly tying has been watching Red Green, but I know a good fly tying bench when I see one.

That is a lot of drawers. How do you remember what is inside each one? LOL

Beautiful! But it needs built in lighting and a swing out magnifier. LOL

Very nice. Back when I was tying regularly, I used my old roll-top desk. Lots of drawers makes yours extra useful.

Wow, as a fly tier myself that is a very nice desk. You must be tying a lot of flies.
Excellent job.

Very nice.
I use my reloading bench, bad part is when I get the two confused; shooting fish and feathering targets.

Very attractive piece. Should make your hobby all that much more enjoyable.
Well done!
