Putting order in the system!
In storing fly tying materials, one must be careful in order to avoid wasting too much time in searching for and selecting materials. I have come up with a very organized method for quick storage and accessability of my supplies so they are conveniently at hand, easy to find, and within arms reach, or at most, a step or two of the vise.
All of my supplies are catalogued neatly in alphabetical order, in envelopes in a very large set of file cabinets. The feathers are by species, type, and shades of primary colors, and use. It's a little cumbersome until you get used to it.
And if you believe THAT story, I've got some swampland in Jersey for sale very reasonably.
