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.
The newest Fly Fusion wallpaper has just been posted. This one features tyer Darren MacEachern and his twist of the classic Demon Rangeley streamer.

For fans of the Rangley streamers this is a treat. Selene is known for her reproductions of Carrie Steven’s flies and creations of her own. Like Carrie, Selene ties without a vise. The video demonstrates the skills involved in tying these classic flies.
