I found a few cool items I know I’d love to have. As always, anything Martinek is on the list, but in addition to that, I found a nice little set of Warren Duncan flies.
Martinek Volume 1
Bert Quimby Lures
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
Just stumbled upon a nice cache of east coast streamers. I myself collect these, but chances are good that I’ll not be around to bid when they end. They mostly look to include the backing cards and wrappers. Some Orvis and LL Bean, but mostly smaller outfits. They are all starting at 3 bucks, so there are some potential deals to be had. looks like there is even a Bert Quimby fly, unfortunately, it’s in rough shape and missing the hackle. That card is probably worth having at least. Good luck bidding.
