Just a quite note about a few auctions that you may be interested in. The user famoustyers1942 has caught my eye a few times in the past and so I have been keeping watch, hoping for a few flies to come up for auction that I want to add to my collection. His collectible flies on ebay include ties from Harry Darbee, Dick Talleur, Al Troth, Bob Veverka, Lefty and many more. Below are a few of the key auctions. The end soon, so be sure to act quickly. Happy Bidding, auctions start ending on June 10th.
Like the Clouser Minnow, the Lefty’s Deceiver has reached an almost mythical status in the realm of fly fishing. There is an unofficial contest being waged on which pattern is responsible for more species to hand. At last count, the Clouser was pegged with 106 species of fish with the Deceiver close behind. Think of the Deceiver as a template rather than a specific pattern. By Changing out aspects of the fly, you can create an endless array of patterns in sizes targeting trout up to monstrous concoctions tendered for hunting the largest of saltwater quarry.
