Build your own Fly Tying Bench

(with these Fly Tying Bench plans)

Fly tying bench

So you want to build your own fly tying bench, eh??? And you're in search of some fly tying bench plans? Well, that's why you're here isn't it? Let me guess... you've been to dozens of websites already and just haven't been able to find any fly tying bench plans you like. You just haven't found that magical fly tying bench you've been dreaming of? Well, you're not alone.

So why build your own bench? Well, there are many different reasons. If you're anything like me (and I've found that many fly fishermen are), then fly fishing has become a journey for you. When I started, I visited the local fly shops and bought what they told me to. After about a year of that, this just didn't satisfy me anymore. Why cast a fly made by someone else? The true joy of catching trout comes from crafting a fly imitation by your own hand that is good enough to fool a trout. To do this effectively, you need a nice fly tying bench to work from. Now I'm not so naive as to think I have the fly tying bench plans that absolutely everyone is going to love but I will tell you this, I have received more emails than I ever imagined from people who love this fly tying bench design and want me to send them the plans for it. Why? It's simple. Because these fly tying bench plans allow the budget-minded fly tyer to build a high quality, functional and very affordable fly tying bench without needing any woodworking tools. It's really that simple.

This fly tying bench is the result of many hours spent online (as some of you have done already), many conversations with fly tying friends and probably most importantly, many fly tying classes where I was able to speak to others just like you and me about what they liked and disliked about the fly tying benches they were using.

I've just never been able to figure out why anyone would want to go out and spend literally hundreds of dollars on those huge, elaborate, professionally made fly tying desks when you can build your own professional-looking fly tying bench for so much less.

So what are you waiting for? Don't put it off any longer. You've finally found what you're looking for. Isn't that a great feeling?

Obviously this isn't a merchant website and I expose many fly fishing tips and secrets on this website absolutely free but I have decided to charge a modest fee of only $9.99 for these fly tying bench plans to help offset the cost of the website. The fly fishing community is such a caring, sharing and giving group of folks and I'm glad to share my knowledge as well. By paying only $9.99 for these plans and purchasing your materials and assembling your own fly tying bench, you'll still be making this bench for around 1/3 to 1/2 of what you'd pay for most fly tying benches commercially made. Plus, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you did it yourself. You just can't beat that.

NOTE: This is a digital download purchase so you can download your plans right away. Once you click the order button below you will be taken to the download page. If you are not taken to the download page for any reason, please email me and I will get the plans off to you right away.
