“I can tell you that you have one of the rare products on the market that is oozing quality. It’s great to pay for something that is well built and lasts”.
Paul B. Brunner “Too Short”
Rick Weisberg, owner and founder of Oasis Benches was the sole recipient of the 2008 “Award of Excellence” presented by the Eastern Rocky Mountain Council of the Federation of Fly Fishers.
Welcome to the Oasis Benches web site, the ultimate fly tiers candy store. The following pages are filled with all sorts of unique and interesting products to assist today’s fly tier. Since 1989 Oasis’s goal has been to produce the finest in fly tying organizers at a fair price.
Once you compare our designs, workmanship, materials and prices you will see why we have become the leader in fly tying organizational centers. If you have looked around at other manufacturers you will notice with some of them the strong similarities with some of our designs. We take compliment with imitation being the strongest form of flattery but our quality can’t be matched quite as easily.
After receiving “The Gilly Oasis” fly tying bench I was very impressed by the quality of craftsmanship. As a former Industrial Arts Woodworking instructor for fifteen years, I must say the quality and craftsmanship of this bench has all the amenities that I needed in tying my fly patterns. Oasis… I am giving your craftsmanship an “A+”
Sincerely, Mike Kelly, Assistant Principal Brownstown, Indiana Fly Tier
Why use a fly tying bench, and especially an Oasis bench? Sure you can work out of a shoe box and take time to set up your fly tying area and break it down and put everything away when you are done. A lot of fly tiers do that all the time. An organizer saves you time.
It makes it more convenient as you are always set up to tie at a moments notice. And when you are done just pick up the bench and store it in an out of the way, out of site location. You can stop half way through a fly and come back days later and start right where you left off.
When selecting a bench look for one that will store a variety of sized items, the more the better so you can grow into the bench with time. Oasis benches unique and original designs meets that criteria.
We now have 12 bench designs to satisfy everyone form the beginner to the most serious hard core fly tier. Our wide selection of accessory items address organizing many of the different materials used today.
In the past you would have found Oasis products in stores like Bass Pro Shop, Cabela’s, Feather-Craft, and Orvis. Due to starting a second business in 2005 Rick got so busy with both businesses something had to change. In 2008 Oasis stopped selling to the big box stores. Now our distribution is limited to our web site, a few good fly shops, J Stockard, and Feather-Craft.
Oasis Benches can be found in Italy, Japan, France, Iceland, Canada, Korea, South Africa and many others just to mention a few.
Our production facility is turning out Oasis benches and accessories all year long. During the slow time of the year (spring and summer) we are building up the inventory for the busy time (Christmas and the winter tying season).
Oasis has only 2 builders of these fine products. Myself and my assistant Joe Caputo (who has been with me well over 25 years) helps keep our quality where it needs to be. All products are made here in Arizona. Thank you for supporting made in the USA.
“I’ve always loved the beauty and function of finely crafted wood tools and furnishings. I enjoy tying with my lovely wood Oasis Pedestal Base and Tying Lamp system. I highly recommend it”
