The Bayou Fly-Tying Desk
Dream of catching redfish, sea trout, or another favorite “marsh saltwater” fish, while you tie on The Bayou! It is stained in Golden Oak and painted and “weathered” in the color of bayou vegetation.
Here are the table specs:
- The base of the table is made of 1 1/2" pine to give you a heavy base. The desk measures approximately 22" wide by 11" deep.
- A large redfish has been elevated on 1" dowels to use a c-clamp vise. Seven dowels have been placed on the tail end of the redfish for thread spools.
- 10 hook/bead trays have been placed on the desk. There are four 2 1/2" trays, one 1 1/2" trays, and five 1" trays. All trays have been lined with a magnet.
- In the back middle, a spool rack has been elevated with 11 dowels for thread spools.
- On the right side of the desk, an elevated sea trout is placed, which includes 18 slots for tying tools.
- Throughout the back of the desk, three sassafras limbs, which replicate old weather-beaten trees, have been placed to hang your flash. Each “tree” has two dowels for flash hanging – 12 clips are included to keep your flash in place. Trees range in height from 10”-12” – different shaped “trees” are placed on each desk, as they are cut from limbs, and no limb is the same shape!
- On the back left, a “dock” stands above the grass and the waterway. It is made with cedar “planks” and includes two wine corks, which can be used to place your flies, while the dry.
There is minor assembly required. The three “trees” are shipped loose, as they are too tall to fit in the shipping box. Three holes have been pre-drilled for the trees, and they are numbered 1, 2, and 3. Screws are included to attach these “trees” from the bottom of the desk.
Also, spool dowels are shipped loose, as to not break in shipping. You can place these in the pre-drilled slots as shown in the pictures, and you may glue in place.
***If you are left-handed and wish to have the redfish on the right-hand side of the desk, please let me know in COMMENTS at checkout. I will "flip" the desk for you, so everything is in reverse from pictures shown.
