North Umpqua Steelhead Flies
I have a bunch of flies that I got many years ago from the old Blue Heron Fly Shop (Joe Howell) on the North Umpqua. For various reasons, I won't be headed to the NU again and would like to move these flies out to someone who will appreciate them and maybe take them to the NU and use them. Anyone fortunate enough to ever visit Joe at his shop knows that he was 'the man' on the NU (also one heck of a nice guy) and the flies he sold out of his shop were tried and true for that place. I have eight Green Butt Skunks, five Umpqua Perils, and five Paintbrushes. All are size #1. The Skunks and Perils are dressed on Tiemco 7999 hooks and the Paintbrushes are built on bronze Mustad 1197 hooks. I have used others like these on the NU; they sink like rocks and they are effective there. None of these babies have ever seen water. I can't load pics here, but if interested, text me at 208-559-3271 and I'll send you some photos. And oh yes, $75 for the lot, shipped anywhere CONUS east, west, north or south. Thanks for looking.

Thanks to all who showed interest
