Over the past twenty years the Niles Riverfest has brought in many fly fishing items. This year was no exception. These fly fishing items came from the tackle box of a long time, world traveled Atlantic Salmon fly fisherman by the way of Florida. I find it interesting to note the variety of age and origin of these items. From the Atlantic Salmon flies made in England and Norway to the domestic South Bend Hop-Oreno, Heddon Flap-Tail Mouse, and the exquisite Colorado Moths. This gentleman fisherman must have really gotten around over the years plus he must have enjoyed fishing for a variety of fish.
What a time capsule! Awesome photo, too. Thanks Doug!
