I met a man who was a Doctor from Maine Back in the late 90s and we became good friends. He was also a fly fisherman like me. he was ailing and one day I was doing some work for him and he handed me and old sheep skin with a bunch of old flies on it. He told me that when he was younger he got these from Carrie Stevens a famous fisherwomen from Maine. I have never tried to fish with them they are still wrapped up in that old sheep skin. there are some grey ghost in the mix. How can I get these verified?
