Olive Oil – Andrew Moy

If you have some extra Blue Eared Pheasant cluttering you tying desk, here is a simple little spey that can help you get rid of it. This one features a hairwing instead of the more traditional strip wing, but I do like the end result. I’ll need to come back to this little spey in the summer to tie a few for the fall salmon and trout run.

Lang’s Auction Nov 6, 2010

These auctions just always remind me how much money I don’t have. The auctions are always pretty epic in terms of the reels and rods that are on the block, but our focus is really the flies, and this one does not disappoint. Tyers of note are as follows Lee Wulff, Carrie Stevens, Ernest Schwiebert, Rube Cross, Preston Jennings, Charles DeFeo, J.C. Arseneault, Walt, Winnie and Mary Dette, Poul Jorgensen, Paul Schmookler, Belarmino Martinez, Harry Lemire, George F. Grant (amazing) and Alec Jackson. Plus a few more tyers, but that list is getting really long, so go check it out. http://www.liveauctioneers.com/catalog/22945
