Harry Lemire Showcase

This is a sweet little find. I’ve long admired the art of the classics. Ronn Luca Sr. has put together a great cache of flies tied up by his friends and customers. Harry took his instruction and inspiration for tying classics from “How To Dress Salmon Flies” by T.E. Pryce-Tannatt and even adheres to the tradition by tying the flies sans vise. (Check out a fly tied by Selene Dumaine tied without a vise) I would challenge any tyer to try this to get an appreciation of the task. The modern vise has spoiled the tyer. 🙂

Enjoy looking through the collection of flies, and thank you to Ronn for putting the collection together.
