John,

Very nice !!

Where do you get those cases, never seen them out here in the flat land of great lakes.

Thanks

Hal


P.S. The only classic fly case I ever did was for a senior executive I worked for 15 years ago who was a big outdoorsman from Idaho. He is now retired back to Idaho in his cabin on a trout stream. Says he gets all types of comments on fly display from visitors. It was a great lakes steelhead and salmon fly display.

I don't have anything here at home, they are all in the fly wallets I guess I should think about doing something for the wall to start my fly fishing legacy.

Hal..I get mine at creft stores..like "Michaels"..they come in a variety of sizes and are nice to the extent that there are different types of frames to choose from and different depths... I used to get the bigger ones at Antiques fly shows but they are kind of big and two deep but are great just the same. I will speak with Juro and probably make a bunch more for the fly shows here and we can auction them off or just sell them to raise money for the forum..... besides it will give me another excuse to tye more... I will also put the Borski flies in as well. Someone might want them.P.S....The Borski frame is now in the Bonefish archive and is a nice Gold frame..not deep.

Classic Fly Display

I will try to attach a picture of Fly Frames that I make in 3 differant sizes to display my favorite flies, they are glass enclosed and have a shadow box effect, the frame in the picture is a 5" x 7"

(1) 5" x 7"
(2) 8" x 10"
(3)16" x 20"

Although in the picture the frame color looks to be black, its actualy a deep blue, and the frames come in 4 differant colors
Joe
