  In 2009, as a result of Jay’s love of fly tying/fly-fishing and carpentry he was inspired to create a very beautiful and portable fly tying bench. After making a few of them, he gave them to some friends and family to test out.  After two years of testing them out, he formed  Finest Fly Tying Benches Of Colorado in the fall of 2011.
