Rangeleys Sesquicentennial

Thanks to Chris Del Plato from the Streamer List for this find. You may remember this fly plastered on the cover of Fly Tyer magazine a couple years back. The fly was designed and tied by Grey Wolf (Sam Claro) to commemorate the Rangeley’s 150th year, hence the name. A limited edition of 50 framed flies were produced, all dressed on hooks 50 years or older. It is mounted in a handmade wood framed and includes a Gold plate inscribed “Celebrating 150 Years 1855-2005” along with Gray Wolf’s signature. You can find the auction here, but hurry as it is ending shortly. Happy bidding.
