For sale here we have a Gary Howells fly box with flies from his personal fishing collection. The flies were tied by Howells himself - they are in exceptional condition and expertly tied as Howells was a very accomplished tyer.
This box was made by Perrine and is the clip style consisting of six rows of 10 clips for a total capacity of 60 flies holding 46 currently. The box is dedicated to wet flies, mostly soft-hackle with some older style winged wet flies and a few small Salmon fly style tied with jungle cock. The flies are in the #12-16 size range. All of the flies are in excellent shape. The box as with the others is in used but very well cared for condition. All clips are secure. The box measures 3 3/4" (L) x 2 5/8" (W) x 5/8" (D)
These personal artifacts from Gary Howells are a rare glimpse into a bamboo rod making legend. A must have for R.L. Winston or Howells collectors. Don't miss out on this piece of fly fishing history.
