Items too big to store easily in drawers can be a nuisance. The best answer is a large cupboard or closet. Like many flytyers, I keep a selection of the larger items that I use frequently (such as peacock tails, ostrich plumes, pheasant and turkey tails) in a jar on the tying bench. Most other bulky items, like large buck tails and bundles of turkey tail feathers, can be stored in cardboard boxes and paper bags respectively. Whole skins from larger animals, such as deer, can be folded carefully and kept in stout polythene see-through bags.
