Item Description

"Lively was a brilliantly innovative tier whose flies were a marvel of creative genius, and his techniques were both cleverly thought out and years ahead of their time."
                            Henry Ramsay, Matching Major Eastern Hatches: New Patterns for Selective Trout

Chauncy Lively never sold a fly. He always said that tying for profit would spoil the fun. He did give flies to friends and traded some with other tiers, but there aren't many out there! They are coveted by collectors.

He was the author of Chauncy Lively's Fly Box: A Portfolio of Trout Flies and wrote columns on fly tying for Trout, Fly Tyer, United Fly Tiers Roundtable, Pennsylvania Angler, and Riverwatch.

This package contains 6 Chauncy Lively flies, a copy of Chauncy Lively's Fly Box and a copy of the American Fly Fisher with an article by Hoagy B. Carmichael.
