Carrie Stevens Flies on Auction

A few of Carrie Stevens bucktails are now up for auction on EBay. Check below for the link. The flies up for grabs are bucktail patterns tied by Carrie. I do on occasion see some of her feather wing streamers become available, but this is the first time I’ve seen her lesser know bucktails.

Quote from auction:

The flies are part of a collection of vintage Fly Fishing rods and reels, prints, books and flies which were removed from the Johns Pond, Maine cottage of the noted RANGELEY LAKES area author, conservationist and fly fishing pioneer, MARGARET BLISS OWEN (1898-1991). The offering includes 2 original Stevens patterns : F.R.S. Special, and F.R.S. Fancy (please reference page 133 of the definitive book on Carrie Stevens by Graydon R. and Leslie K. Hilyard) and an unnamed bucktail streamer which is likely another of her original patterns.

The bidding is currently at 152.00 US and her feather wings typically sell in the $300 – $400 range, so a lucky collector may be getting a pretty good bargain with this trio. I’ll post the final number once the auction ends. Happy bidding.
