Dear sir
I have always had a problem when tying flies as you never seem to have everything at hand when you need it,I have just made a desk and I am amazed how tidy you can keep everything
Thank you for posting you brilliant idea

My God Ole,
This is beautiful!
If I'd seen your creation earlier, I'd never have bought the bench I have. Believe it or not, the basic concept is similar, but the (CORRECT) size of yours is far superior to mine. This stimultaes me to do a "remodel/addition" of a sort to my tying bench, but will not ever reach what I can see is a superior approach. Thanks for sharing.
