FLYTYING TRAVEL VALET

 

FLY TYING RETIREMENT GIFT?  BIRTHDAY GIFT?  Here is a travel fly tying valet we can guarantee your fly tier doesn’t (or, from our customer list, confirm he does) have.  A perfect fly tying travel companion for fly fishing safaris during the evening at the tying club, the favorite lodge or, on the water.  Designed to my own travel tying needs and experiences, valet can be customized as requested.

$195 Cdn

16″ long, the FLY TYING TRAVEL VALET is constructed in soft sided waxy finish light Havana panel hide with length enough for full capes.  The TRAVEL VALET features include a TOOL RACK, RIRI zipper closure w. leather pull, full piping even along the zipper. As is our bent for traditional leather case work, the TRAVEL VALET is entirely HAND SEWN. Tool rack, slotted nylon or all leather comes with removable shroud securing tools to rack for travel (SEE PHOTO’S, PAGE BOTTOM).
