Default The good old days. Spinner?

There was a time when most flies you bought were tied in Wisconsin and that state was the epicenter of fly gear manufacturing.
I found these in an old Nat Geo magazine circa 1956.

Wow. That is really neat.
A couple of Tues. ago we were tying Buz Buszek's, Western Coachman. One of the guys had Buz's daughter come talk to us about him and their business. She told of the "housewives" (just like in the picture) that they had tying flies for their shop in the 1950's. They got a nickel a fly.

I love these old documents thanks for sharing Jackster.
I found these about Gérard de Chambéret, (1887-1941) who was one of the first fly sellers in france.

I think it was in the movie Rancho Deluxe where one of the woman who starred in it played a fly tier at Dan Baileys. They showed scenes of the tying room where the ladies were busy tying flies. Just another piece of the way it was.
