The only reason I’m showing you this is because I already own and love a copy of this to call my own. This copy is a lot less thumbed than mine as I’ve read it cover to cover at least 5 times. The book includes the flies that Fran made famous during his lifetime including the Haystack and the Usual.
Here is a good chance to own some real streamer memorabilia. If you read the blog regularly, you have probably guessed I have a bias for featherwing streamers. I already have this issue, but I’m temped to buy it just for the streamer. Check out Duane’s flies here.
Each issue is autographed by Duane and will include one of the feature flies! The fly will be of the buyers choice (one of the 5 pictured) and will be in one of Duanes plastic, fleece-lined cases with display card insert stating the fly name, hook # and size along with Duanes signature.
Last we have a nice collection of fly tying materials and a Renzetti Vise. Even without the Vise, this looks like a great deal. Good luck and happy tying to whoever snags this one.
