For sale here are three wonderful Gary Howells ephemera items. First, an 8x11 brochure featuring photos of Gary Howells rods, showing the Payne-style grip and two reel seat options. Also included are two typed letters on Howells' letterhead, one details rod models, prices and a signed note in 1990 regarding deliveries being quoted for delivery in late 1990, early 1991. The other more interesting piece of ephemera is an unsigned letter explaining his history as a rodmaker, his rodmaking philosophy and many other details such as his current delivery time of 14 months. "My not having an expensive catalog ready to shower eager fly fishermen with is best explained by giving my credentials as a rodmaker".....he continues to explain. A wonderful piece of history on Howell's letterhead indeed!
All three are in excellent condition. I've purposely included poor resolution photos of the letters simply due to the fact that many interested owners may simply copy the photos for their files. Who wants to OWN them?
