Some Cool Atlantic Salmon Flies

•June 17, 2010 • Leave a Comment

You can probably tell I’ve been spending more time on ebay the last couple weeks. Well why not when I’m finding some killer flies and books! I’ve picked up a couple lots of vintage Willis and Bergman / Nyack hooks, Damian Lee Welsh Flies and just missed the top bid on a rare Carrie Stevens (I probably should not have posted about that one). Check these finds out.

More from the same seller, tied by Richard LaMonte of New York State. (Hurry as I think these should go quick)

Matt Stansberry Pike Fly

•June 16, 2010 • 1 Comment

A nice tutorial for big massive flies pike flies. I used a ton of the saltwater yak hair on some streamers for a customer last year and loved the results. The hair has a bit of translucence similar (but not quite as nice) to polar bear, but you can easily find it in a 12 inch + length. The technique of tying in materials and folding them back is going to create a really durable fly. Let those teeth fly, chuck and duck.

L.A. Freeway Fly

A bit more fodder for those anglers chasing bass, bulls, and toothy critters.

Dana Griffin demonstrates tying his L.A. Freeway Fly, a great fly for bass and bream as well as many other warm water species.

Filmed at the 2010 FFF Southeastern Conclave at Unicoi State Park, GA.

Damian Welsh flies on Auction

•June 15, 2010 • Leave a Comment

I just spotted this little gem of an auction currently at 8.99. This is for 6 of Damian Lee Welsh’s flies. Damian is know for his Atlantic salmon ties and these are a steal at the moment. You can check out the auction here (Damian Lee Welsh Flies). In my collection, I have a few of his flies as well as 3 of Sarah Briston’s artworks featuring Damian’s flies. This auction appears to include 2 of the Nova Scotia flies designed by Bill Carpan, a Rusty Rat, A couple Ackroyd variations and an Orange Parson. You are looking at probably close to $400.00 of flies. Wow, happy bidding.
