Canadian beauties
And then again... more flyfishing stamps earlier this year! Post Canada came out with a lovely series of 6 large stamps, worth 45 cents each. They feature wonderful creations such as the Cosseboom Special, the Coho Blue, the Dark Montreal, (formerly also known as the Canada Fly), the Steelhead Bee, the Coquihalla Orange and the Lady Amherst. What a charming girl with her silvery wings, giving me a wink with her Jungle Cock eyes: will you tie me, Maestro, pleeeeze.
I saw the Canadian stamps in a German flyfishing magazine for the first time this summer and they gave me an idea. Yes! I am going to get me a couple of sets, I'll tie the flies, I'll get me some goodlooking matboard material, some nice wood for the frame. I'll make something nice out of it.
