 You do realize that every time you clean up after trimming a fly, the dust goes too?

 

He’s referring to every other part of the desk.

Yes but the dust settles everywhere as you may know. An example of that just look at your vehicle("car, truck...etc.) the dash board in a few days even with the windows up and you will find dust! Now with the roll top desk you will still find dust but not as much. The dust is constant and yes after trimming a fly or in my case flies("I normally tie a half a dozen at a time") :)

  That's a stretch. I'm building rods in the same area where I tie. I keep it clean (easily, it's just a large flat surface), since a dust issue like the one you're talking about would make it pretty much impossible for me to work with epoxy.

Very timely thread (topic) for me.  We recently moved into a small ranch home with a great basement.  After building some basic shelving to support the unpacking of the boxes, I decided to build a work bench (that for me is basically a multi-purpose fishing table/corner of the basement.  Rods stored overhead using vinyl covered screw-in hooks and a 8'x34" table.  The table (when complete) will include a 8'x16" storage shelf below, and one 8'x8.5" shelf plus 2 4'x6" shelves above.  My plan is to use the left half of the table for tying, and the right half for other minor work on my equipment - sharpening/exchanging hooks, cleaning reels, etc.  After reading some of the comments in this thread, if multi-purpose does not work out for me, I'll use exclusively for fly tying. 

 

PS - some great photos in some of the replies in this thread!

Thanks very much and yeah, the willingness to offer their expertise, opinions, etc is pretty impressive by folks on this board.  If not careful, one can find him or her self absorbed in the vairous threads and posts..  Give those fish a boot and send them up the coast a bit, we're itching to get at them!
