I use one very similar to this. Think I purchased it at Hobby Lobby and for less than this one. I like the clip base because I can easily move it around on my tying station.

I have this one. The price has gone up since last year, but I haven't found a better lamp for tying. The combination of fluorescent and incandescent lighting is perfect.

That looks like a user friendly lamp. Does give a reach around?
You'll have to buy one to find out. I'll sell ya mine for $350.00.

Thank you for all the recommendations. That "drafting lamp" style that many of you have pointed to seems to be popluar in many fly shops as well, I just never knew what they were called. The price seems right too.

I have an old architect's drafting lamp that has a multiple magnifier - use a 'bathroom/kitchen' circle-lite tube in it. I got the lamp that the Nor Vise guys sell to go with my vise and that uses one of those 'daylight' type tubes on it. Best color comes from the daylight tube. Just don't use a 'soft white' fluorescent bulb - way too pink!

A regular old school 'high intensity' lamp with a good 100W bulb is the way to go. I'm a huge fan of GE 'Reveal' style bulbs - the color spectrum is excellent.

If you run into a great lamp that needs a clamp style base, I picked up an extra clamp base for quite reasonable at H.R. Meininger's, which is an excellent artist's supply.

Which do you guys prefer, incandescents or fluorescent? Halogen? L.E.D.?

They now have 12" circular fluorescents and a bulb type CLR.
...if I were to order one of these bulbs for that exact Luxo drafting lamp you linked, where would I find one? (link?)
