Hey, Plumbob.......All those plaques and awards on the wall? Are those awards you got for being Plumber of the Year or something? :D

I want Grumpy's desk or Plumbob's house with the extra room. I can probably afford Grumpy's desk.

Yer Pal,
Streamer

Plumbob, would you mind sharing some close-ups of those flies you've deemed worth framing? I figure those things have to be pretty mind-blowing if you've decided to hang them in a room where flies are made that the rest of us would deem frame-worthy.

Pictures of the chicken would also be appreciated 8-)

Plumbob, is that a pull-out or pull down table in the center? I can't tell from the picture, but if so, I like the idea.

My old tripod is broken so I threw it away. However, only yesterday, I finally got around to ordering my Christmas present (a new tripod). Sometime in the next few days I will take a picture of my mess. Still, you can send your body hair/toe nail flies to Streamer.

Tough to get a good picture through the glass but they aren't anything special except to me. Just regular patterns, some of the first contests I had won where they had a set pattern to tie. Here's a pic of the Cree chicken. Have had him around for years and still not sure how long your supposed to cook him.

Its a 4X8 counter top thats fastned to the cabinets in the back and a kitchen wall cabinet holding up the front end. Its open in the middle, have plug molding running down the center underneath so I can plug in anything I want without extention cords or having the cords get in the way on top. Standard Kitchen base cabinets are a bit high to work off off thats why I have the counter top lower in between the cabinets. You don't need a top that big for tying flies but its great for rod building or anything else that requires a lot of surface area. You may be able to find decent used kitchen cabinets for nothing or really cheap and you can get a counter top at most Home Centers. Gives you good storage and lots of work area.

Mr. Plumbob,

Is that a new rod you are working on? Second question, is that a U# reel seat on the rod jig?

Nice looking set up for sure!

Ralph :D

Na, its an old picture. Do have an old glass wonder rod stripped down that I should be putting back together. Not sure what you mean by U# reel seat?
