Howells, Gary - Personal Salmon & Steelhead Flies


For sale here we have one of Gary Howells' personal salmon and steelhead fly boxes (Wheatley). The flies were tied by Howells himself -they are in exceptional condition and well tied as Howells was a very accomplished tyer. The flies were tied between 1960-1970. 

There are 4 rows of 5 larger clips in the lid and bottom of the boxes and 5 rows of 7 smaller clips on the front and back of the center leaf. The box is in excellent condition and free of defects. The hinges, clasps, and clips are all in fine working order. The box dimensions are 6" (L) x 3 5/8" (W) x 1" (D). 

All of the flies are in excellent condition, most of them if not all are unused.

Note: Upon request, a letter of provenance can be provided by current owner Craig Lynch.

This and many other books, catalogs, and ephemera come from the collection of Craig Lynch. More to come as well....see here!

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.

Unless otherwise noted, all items come with a 3-day inspection period during which they can be returned to us for a full refund (provided that they are in the same condition in which they left our shop).
