Like the old saying "a clean desk is the sign of a sick mind".

My desk isn't clean so why do I have a sick mind?

Oh well, sanity is overrated.

The key is using an area that is used for eating or preparing food. A few loose feathers is a good way to test the waters ;)

I am the WIFIE unit in this bunch and I am the tier. At least now I am also building my own rods as well.
I have to say, your desk is a mess, how do you know you don't already have a material?

That was stupid question anyway cause that has never stopped me from buying more.

No plastic drawers here or shoe boxes, but STANLEY tool rollers ( I travel allot)

Dang, Joni! I like that hook box carousel a lot!

I have the same Stanley Double Box Rolling unit thing too. It is FULL of various furs and hairs.

I am a man of organized chaos. I know it's messy, but I also have a good idea of where to find everything when I want it.

Yer Pal,
Streamer

A lot of you have seen my desk at home....which is usually pretty organized compared to how I roll.....

Image

I keep all my tying materials in these handy high dollar storage units (bags) ....

Image

Image

Image

to the untrained eye....it would appear as total chaos.....but I, like Streamer...could produce any tying material needed in about 60 seconds....well maybe two or three minutes :roll:

Tom, I've seen how you do that. You just dump all those bags out on the floor, and start pawing through it. :D

Judy actually admires my fur and feathers, and as long as I keep the stuff over in my tying corner, she doesn't say much. Now she does tend to shy away from road kill, until I've had a chance to clean it up and prepare it.

Thanks all, and thanks for inviting me to the new fishing hole.

I have baggies too. I can actually carry allot in that stanley

Image

And the little tray is awesome for beads and cones, but heads up, you need to put a top on each compartment cause the will spill if tipped. A lesson learned the hard way.
