I'm interested in purchasing a frame that will accommodate both pictures and flies. I have a Dave McNeese tied Drain's 20, the Skagit Mist that Dec Hogan tied for a Passion for Steelhead, and one of Marty Howard's Sauk Orange speys. I'd like to frame those w/ a selection of my favorite pics from some steelhead trips. Anyone know of a source for a frame like that? Thanks in advance.

I think to get something you're really happy with it would be worth your time to go to a local picture framer. An independent shop, as opposed to a chain store, should be able to offer you some real expertise.

Somewhere, there is a file showing how to do this using a hidden post (like what guys use to tie tube flies with where a wire loop is passed through the hollow post and looped around the shank of the fly and then pulled tight. You have the post about 3/8" of an inch long, its mounted via a small hole in heavy card stock or something similar. That way the flies look like they are suspended instead of simply poked into a big blob of cork or something just as ugly
