US Stamps
Subsequently, in 1991 - if internal memory serves me right - the United States Postal Service came out with a flyfishing stamp series, showing Lee's Royal Wulff, Stu's Apte Tarpon Fly, Kreh's Lefty's Deceiver, Don Gapen's Muddler Minnow, and a beautiful Jock Scott created by John Scott almost 150 years ago. And again in that same drawer, in that same attic, covered with a thin layer of that same dust, I found a few of those. My good friend and colleague, Marvin Nolte, presented me with a flyplate containing these stamps and the flies that he had tied. This plate is now on one of the walls of my den of inequity here. I am looking at the plate while writing this story. Beautiful flies that bar none.
