Lefty on Ebay

There are lots of cool thing up for bid this week on EBay, but I’m only gonna tell you about this one, cause I sort of have my eye on the others. This is a rare find and would actually make a nice addition in my office, but alas, I have my eye on a few other gems. If you can’t get the framed, fly though and still want some Lefty memorabilia, try picking up on of Lefty’s signed sports cards from the 2008 Donruss Sports Legends series. Mine just came in a couple weeks ago (#706 / 1250).

Classic Footage of Frank Sawyer

Frank Sawyer, is the inventor of the Sawyer Pheasant Tail Nymph and a number of derivatives of this famous fly. This video is one of Frank giving a demonstration of how to tie the nymph and a dry fly sometime in the 1950’s. The credits state that this is the only known surviving footage of Frank Sawyer actually tying a nymph. It’s a piece of history folks.
