This is an exceptionally nice set of 2 Golden Witches authenticated by Paul Schmookler (Forgotten Flies, Art of Angling Journal & Rare and Unusual Fly Tying Materials). The flies are pieced together with a bit of history as well. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this sell for $600.00 or more considering that many recent auctions of Carrie Stevens flies have hit over $400.00 for a single fly.
A few Don Bastian flies are currently up for bid on eBay. Included in the lot is a nice specimen of the Grey Ghost made famous by Ms. Carrie Stevens. Check out the other Don Bastian item on the block as well. This could be a really nice cache of wet flies for the right bidder. Don tied many of the flies in the Forgotten Flies book written by Paul Schmookler and Ingrid Sils. While he is best known for the wet flies he ties, he does twist up a mean streamer as well.
Just spotted on eBay is a nice Carrie Stevens Green Beauty size #4. The bidding has just reached about 80 dollars, but I would think that the fly should end up going for about 250-300 US. This fly has the original card and cellophane. Auction ends Dec 20, 200920:38:50 EST.
