It’s been quite a while since I featured any auctions, but I just seen a few really wonderful flies posted on doubleleopard, Paul Schmookler’s account. Lots of Warren Duncan Rusty Rat’s are posted. I think Paul must have a case of them socked away. There are 4 Rusty Rat’s posted, each tied with a different type of hair in the wing; grey fox, badger, mongoose and skunk.
Here are the links to the next 10 flies in the collection. Check back to see the next set of 10. We’ll try to keep you updated, but you can also keep an eye on Don’s Ray Bergman Collection that includes the entire set so far.
George F. Grant’s have always been quite inspiring to look at. George passed away a couple years ago at the age of 102 and leaves his legacy of the woven hair hackle fly. His flies are true treasures and I believe every collector should had a few of his works in their collection.
