It's been a while since I've posted flies up on Ebay, and this week has seen a number of great offerings from some of the regulars and a few new offerings. Here is a short list of some of the streamers up for grabs.

First up is Larry Leight who has been putting up a steady streamer of beautiful work over the past few years. You can find his current selection at lk4leight on Ebay. Check out Larry's nod to Lew Oatman in the streamer Lew.

Another one to watch is from a young up and comer who sells under honker1965 on Ebay. This 15 year old tyer has a future in many collections, and I've watched over the past couple years and have seen the streamers improve by leaps and bounds. You can check out the streamers they have up now including the classic Carrie Stevens America streamer pattern.

I've also added a few of my own streamers this week. I have a mix of a couple classic Carrie Stevens patterns as well as a couple from the pages of Streamers 365. The Horace Hazard streamer is one of my favourites.

Another tyer who has recently started offering streamers in Alan Emery selling Carrie Stevens patterns under hisgrace on Ebay. Mezger's Special is one of the Carrie Stevens patterns Alan has been tying up for offer.

Streamers 365 contributor Alan Petrucci who goes under uppahdam, has also put up a couple streamers on Ebay. You can find one of Alan's beautiful originals up for grabs.

Lastly, anyone in the market for some vintage Allcock hook should have a look through the current offering. There are a few rare offerings including some Allcock W212 (6xl) hooks and 2811 (8xl) hooks. Happy bidding!

Sorry I didn't make the list this time. I haven't had a good camera to take pictures the way they should be. I am bidding on the hooks. I do have mine on eBay. I have just started up tying in February. I tied for ten years when I were a child. The Outdoor Sportsman Heritage Museum in Rangeley made an offer for me to supply them with Carrie Stevens streamers. So I consider myself an up and comer that is not on the radar. I glue my wings completely, I don't tie my feathers on one at a time like I know so do. Don't get me wrong they look pretty and better looking than mine but, have a step taken out and that may be fine for them but not for me. I am going to get every step down true, no cheating :) although I have learned from some of these guys I have benefited by the books I've bought and read thoroughly. I guess I feel a little left out that's why I responded but that's no ones fault but my own. Have a great day everyone and thanks for the post,

Keep at it Stan. I post these everyone in a while, I'm sure you'll make it on an upcoming one.

Congrats on being able to supply the Museum. I was out to visit it this summer. It's quite the treat for the streamer tyer like ourselves. The tradition is important, and I can't speak for all the other tyers, but like yourself, I too adhere to the tradition of pre-assembling the wings. It's something that I've worked on honing over the past several years with lots of input from other tyers. It's a process and there is always room for improvement and learning what works for you. :)

Yes, I just recently learned my own trick on how to get the. Wings standing at the right angle. Took me a couple months but I am now starting to see how I tie this here, affects this later on tying the streamer. It really is tying in a whole different manor. I can't wait until I get a few thousand under my belt.
