Ernest Schwiebert Salmon Fly

Beautiful 6/0 salmon fly, unused and in pristine condition, tied by Ernest Schwiebert (1931-2005), renowned author and devoted fly fisherman, remembered in fly tying circles for his notable contributions in the field of insect comparability. The exceptional detail seen in the concise illustrations the gifted artist included in his titles is clearly visible in this striking unused hand tied fly. Schwiebert used his flies personally, giving few during his lifetime, making every example a rare treasure for the fly collector. This lot was purchased from Lang Auctions and I can provide a letter of authenticity from them.
