The more different patterns you tie the more materials you'll find yourself buying. It is a great way to stay busy though, I love it. What type of fishing are you doing? The roll-top desk is a great idea, hides the mess that will happen. I use a 5 ft butcher block table and no matter how often I clean/organize it gets messy every week.....oddly enough my wife doesn't complain. I think I'll start looking for a roll-top also.
Haha yeah youre right. Im trout fishing right now. Im hoping to get to some salt next summer. I have saved a little I think. Ive got enough PT nymphs to last me for years and I only have about 15 bucks wrapped up in them.
I got a roll top off craigslist for $30. Its real wood and not in bad shape at all. Im building a little caddy for hooks, tools, thread and stuff. Ill post some pictures soon. In true fly fisherman form I've already stickered the hell out of it.
