How to build a fly tying station


Are you still thinking about how to build a fly tying station? While still on the same issue, do you know the benefits of having your own fly tying station? Seemingly, you might have just realized the benefits that you've missed since you started spending time in someone else's fly tying station. Having your own fly tying station simply means a lot to you whether you are a newbie or an experienced person. 




First and foremost, a personal fly tying station grants you all the power and control of deciding the amount of time that you are going to spend on tying fly flies and part from fixing other fly fishing areas that require repair. Unlike other fly tying stations where people go to get services from, no time limit is associated with owning a y tying station. 

Secondly, you can pack all the necessary fly tying instruments at specific places where you can easily access them at any time.    

However, thinking on how to start the whole construction process looks like a very involving task that perhaps requires the unseen facilities. Surprisingly, it's an easy activity that's straight forward given you have the right choice of materials and site. Let's now have a look at how you are going to build a fly tying station. 

Step 1: measuring and cutting the fly tying stations supplies. 

After identifying the perfect site for the construction and gathering all your supplies, the initial step is measuring and cutting those materials. For an 18 metres long station, measure 1andndash;3/412andndash/36 inches of pine wood board and then cut. 

For quality purposes, go for a laminated pine board. You can also choose to make two such measurements if you need a bigger station. Being on the above measurements, take the length measurements of your station to be 1andndash;18 inches and cut the equivalent piece. Likewise for the station's width, cut a measurement of 2andndash;12 inches and finally, the legs pieces should be cut in following a 4andndash;2 inches measurement. During the whole process, ensure you have many pieces of long dowel since they will be highly used. Let them have a measurement of 1andndash;1/8/36 inches. 

Step 2: Drilling of the fly stations materials. 

Make necessary pilots holes on the boards using a drilling machine ensuring they match with the size of the available joining screws. On the back side, produce 7 holes, one for each screw and then let each leg has its own screw too.  

Step 3: The screwing of the set pieces. 

Begin by fastening the backlash with the legs together. Before screwing them, ensure each hole is in position. In order to make the joints tight and strong, add some white wood glue on the holes or spaces left and then screw the station's arms. 

Step 4: setting up the dowels. Move to the backsplash and produce the dowels holes. Advisably, make holes that are 2 inches apart. Cover the ends of the dowel with glue and before investing them in a hole and then cutting the dowel each place 2 inches apart. Continue doing this until you get the required spool holders number. Finalize by making different holes for the bobbins onto the arms of the station and vanish beautifully.
