Default Re: what to do with all the streamers

.... I think that you'd be better off staying local
Interest (and value) will be much higher
Try asking on the Fly Fishing In Maine forum.
Also you may want to contact a local shop or two
I suggest the Maine Guide Fly Shop in Greenville and the Rangeley Region Sport Shop in Rangeley
They may know some collectors, or buy them outright
Just don't expect to see the prices mentioned above

An even better option might be Lang's Sporting Collectables
http://www.langsauction.com/
They have a big tackle auction coming up in April and they take consignments
Last April they auctioned off a good number of Carrie Stevens original streamers
They averaged about $200 each
Flies from other 'famous' fly tyers such as Lee Wulff, Harry Darbee, and E.R. Hewitt went for far less
