Looking for local tyers........have a tye-athon coming up in January to support Reeling and Healing. Breast cancer recovery group that takes patients fishing. Will provide location .....food and drink. Each tyer donates tyes ........ basic 12 flies or more. Will try to get sponsors to cover most materials. But that falls into the "donation" category of the tyer.

Should be a fun afternoon in the deep cool of winter. Pm me here if interested.

I was looking for some help.I saw Aroostook and thought you may help! My grandfarther was leo murray of Millinocket Maine. He tied flys for years - 1920s 30s, 40s, 50s. He was a Maine state licenced guide for the baxter park area. He use to do sporting shows in Maine and sell flys by the hundreds. His name on the fly card read L G Murray. I have a couple hundred of these trout, and salmon streamers still like new. little ones, big ones, two hooks, three hooks, four hooks, great colors and great detail, some have funny names. They are all on cards and are all old as he died in 1964 and did not tie flys for a number of years before he died. I have a news paper artical showing this and my mom say,s people all over new England, US and some from over sea's would buy his fly's. They would write to him and he would tie them special for them. The question is what to do with them all and of coures his book or sales catalog book. Some of the flys I cant even find there names anywhere. They are going to die if not in the right hands any help would be great. Thanks GVC

I'ld start by looking on ebay....... his flies could already be on there being traded.

The flies listed..his or not would at the least establish a sense of value. The trick here is to locate a collector. An antique dealer is the next best thing. Google his name to see if his flies are being sought or traded. Google antique dealers...Fly collectors and so on.

You can try to contact Two Rivers Canoe in Medway. They may know a local collector who would love to get them.
