Fran Betters AuSable Fly Collection


For sale here is a nice collection of Fran Betters flies, 16 in total. Included are examples of Betters' original designs - the AuSable Wulff and 4 "Haystack" flies, which were an important innovation in the evolution of the Adirondack fly. These creations are two of the most popular and effective trout stream fishing flies to this day - his AuSable Wulff and Haystack patterns were named among the top 10 trout flies of all time by Field & Stream. Housed in a 10" x 5" hinged oak case, all are in excellent condition. Fran Betters' card with signature is included.

Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
