You’ll need to act quick on these as they are ending soon.
One of my favorite sellers famoustyers1942 has a nice selection of vintage hooks, books and flies up for auction right now. Included in the selection are flies by the Dettes, Fulsher, Rosborough, Cross, Veverka, Troth and many more. There is also a nice collection of Allcock hooks up for bid. Check out all the selections from famoustyers1942.
Bob has been writing articles posted on myflies.com in the Angler’s Corner section of the site. You may know Bob from his incredible work with tying realistic flies, or perhaps you have visited and bought a couple collectible flies from Bob and Daves’ Auctions. If you collect flies, this is a must read. Like Bob, I’ve also found that a good story is well worth the price of the fly. While your there, take a look at the selection of flies available on MyFlies.
Just a quick post to let you know about a couple nice finds.
1. Kieth Fulsher – Brook Trout: This is a Lew Oatman pattern tied up by the Thunder Creek series master. This fly looks to be in excellent condition. It is interesting to note the fly is tied on a straight eye hook like Kieth uses for his Thunder Creek series.
2. Carrie Stevens – Unknown This is an interesting pattern, and one I have no idea about the name. I’ve taken a look through my Carrie Stevens references with no luck. I do know there are a large number of patterns never given specific names in her early days, and this may be one of those. Still on the card, and it looks to be in good shape. I wish the photos were a bit better as the dark areas don’t look great on here. Either way, a great little slice of history.
