“Without question the finest fly tying desk on the market. Beautifully crafted and the design will please even the most organized minded fly tyer. I like it so well that I’m using it on my ESPN American Angler T.V. show and will be seen in my new upcoming video “Tying and Fishing Streamer Flies”. It’s really a winner.”

“I’ve always loved the beauty and function of finely crafted wood tools and furnishings. Thanks to the wonderful wood working skills of Rick Weisberg, wherever I travel to tie flies for audiences or to fish, I can enjoy tying them more and better with my lovely wood Oasis Pedestal Base and companion customized Tying Lamp System! I’ll never be without this combo and highly recommend it to traveling tyers or those who have limited tying space at home!”

I’ve tyed at an Oasis Fly Tying Bench for several years. It’s become as indispensable as a precision pair of scissors and/or quality hackles. Beautifully handcrafted these lovely benches are made by a serious fly tyer for professional fly tyers!”

“A bench that will work for me needs to keep a huge and diverse inventory of tools, tying materials, tinsels, and hooks in order. With all my tools and paraphernalia in place I actually had holes and pegs left over. The Oasis Compact Bench is one that I have needed for nearly fifty years as a tyer. . . (It) is absolutely a Godsend for Me”

Les Johnson, editor Flyfishing and Tying Journal

“The fit and finish is really quite remarkable for the money, reminds me of how Browning used to make shotguns. You don’t see fit and finish this good anymore. Pure quality of workmanship, a rarity these days.”

One of the few products that gives you more than what you paid for.”

The Honorable Doug Allen

“Of all the tying benches we’ve sold in our store over the last 15 years, the Oasis bench has sold the best. Most importantly, it doesn’t look like something easily copied by the family woodworker, so the pool of potential customers is very large.”

Dave Corcoran, owner, The Rivers Edge

Bozeman, Montana

“The combination of functionality and hand-crafted beauty found in Rick’s work is a rare thing indeed. The Oasis Bench has added a touch of class to my fly tying work space. Next to a good vice, these benches can probably do more to increase your efficiency as a tier than any other product you can own.”
