More gems on eBay right now. From the estate of Warren “Dunc” Duncan comes some more flies from his collection. Here is a collectible assortment of flies including a couple of Dunc’s creations. Also some other notable flies in this lot are flies tied by Monte Smith, Bob Petti, Al Grombacher, Chris Del Plato and G.S. Stack Scoville. Wow! Happy bidding, but please don’t outbid me. 🙂
It’s been just over a year since Dunc passed. It’s still hard to imagine that he’s not going to be there anymore. I found a set of 30 of Dunc’s flies for auction on eBay and wanted to pass it along. (I’m not affiliated with the seller in any way)
I also happened to find Chris Del Plato’s tribute fly to Dunc called Dunc’s Special.
Chris tied up this Rangeley style streamer in honor of Dunc. He did a wonderful job putting this streamer together. It’s been a while since I have tackled a streamer, but this might be a good project. The wing is really striking, such a beautiful natural dun.
