Managed to borrow a decent digital camera - thanks Rich.

Thanks to everyone who donated files and The Bear's Den for donating fly wallets.

Special thanks to Slinger for organizing and collecting all the files, you'll find some of his ties in this bunch. I've attached a pic but it really doesn't do justice to the collection. It appears that even with a good digital camera I still can't take a decent photo.

Just want to say thanks to the people that donated flies for this auction, Sean Mcdermott, Adrian, Doc Duprey, JFBasser, Capt. Ray, and French Creek. Oh, I threw in a few too. There are 3 identical collections of 21 or 22 flies each in a Finsport fly wallet. Here`s a chance for those of you who don`t tie to get a comprehensive assortment of proven killers.

Alright, I've forgotten how to start a formal auction so let's run it in this thread.

How about we start the bidding @ $45 - that's dirt cheap considering the work that's gone into these collections.

The auction will end a week from today @ 10pm

Bid high - bid often :D :D

I'm supposed to have 3 flies in there too but have not had the time to sit down and tie. I'll send them by mail to whoever wins the auction when I can get some time to tie some up.

Thanks for doing this Slinger! JimW, we appreciate you taking the reins on this one.

I go 70 bucks

This is my first auction, just want to make sure I'm in it still. Do I need to go to another site, or will this do?

05-22-2004, 12:54 PM
You're still in! We'll just run the auction in this thread.

3 magic real deep eels I assume. Sweet!

I thought that the auction ended yesterday(May 25th) at 10 PM. Was I incorrect?

05-27-2004, 07:56 AM
tglynos- You are correct - Somehow I had it in my head that it was running until Friday @ 10pm. - My Bad:( :(
I should have used the real auction system.

In all fairness I think both of you high bidders Tglynos and Jamie should get a set for $100 each. Sound good?

Thank you both very much for your generous contributions. I know you will be pleased with the sets. I'll PM you the payment details and get your addresses.

Juro since one of these sets is going overseas to Jamie it would be best if you sent those 3 flies to me - the other 3 can go direct to Tglynos.

Great! I will get them to you within the next few days. I left all my tying gear on the Cape and won't be able to tie anything until the weekend.

On the other hand Jim, you can send that set to me and I will cover the postage overseas.

Jamie, tglynos - I know I speak for all when I say "thank you" for your site cost help. You are getting a good deal with the flies as well when you look at retail value - win/win!

05-27-2004, 10:58 AM
Sounds good - everyone is a winner.

I am going to be in Cape Cod from the 3rd to 18th June. If the flies are ready I have an address in Hyannis the flies can be posted to. Other wise they can be sent to the UK.

I'll respond to your PM and get payment to you ASAP.

Many thanks,

I have sent payment and address details

Thank you all for the ties and the opportunity to auction for them. as Jamie and I both showed, those flies seem well worth the money, especially when you consider retail price on flies and wallets. I too will be on the cape with Jeff B from June 11th-13th for some prime striper fishing. Maybe we can get together do some fishing Jaime, depending on where your going to be. We will be at Monomy as I understand. Thanks again. Just let me know when you need to know addresses/payment information, you can email me at
