Philatelic Phlies - The Spark
By Bas Verschoor
And then the whole idea was put in storage somewhere in the back of my mind it had almost disappeared. It was not until October that some of my colleagues, fellow members of the Dutch Flyfishers Guild, came back from a steelhead fishing trip to British Columbia and they showed me the stamps which they had purchased in a local post office in BC!
"One set is for you, Bas and here's what we want you to do"
"I know what you want me to do guys. You want me to tie the flies and frame them together with the stamps", I said, smiling big.
"Thanks, Bart, for bringing that idea back to the surface for me."
My heartfelt thanks also go out to the people of FF@ and Flytie@ lists who have been so very helpful in getting me a substantial supply of the stamps. Lindsey, Tom, Paul Thanks ever so much! That was a stroke of genius, Joyce! Glad you whispered that in my ears.
So, here they are my Philatelic Phlies Limited Edition another phantastic project. Although it would be quite within the scope of the Global Fly Fisher website to give tying details of each individual fly, and information about the framing, this would be very time-consuming. And, I have flies to tie and mount, wood and matboard to cut remember? Oh, alright then, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further details, if you have to.
