George F. Grant’s have always been quite inspiring to look at. George passed away a couple years ago at the age of 102 and leaves his legacy of the woven hair hackle fly. His flies are true treasures and I believe every collector should had a few of his works in their collection.
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
