Flick / Dette flies...
Posted 28 July 2009 - 05:27 PM
i was gifted two fly plates...this one, which I know very little about, and another featuring some prominent western tiers mounted beneath a picture, which I know a good deal about. hopefully you guys can give me a little birthday surprise with some more Provence to this piece.
i stumbled upon this forum from a google search returning a recent post of a guy that had fished his Flick flies....the replies prompted me to think I have a little more than i may have initially thought.

theres no reason to doubt the authenticity of your object ... like most items that are 'collectable', value is based on how much a particular collector is willing to part with ... you can find a good ballpark figure by posting it on ebay, with some ridiculously high reserve, if you don't want to take the chance of parting with it ... there are a number of collectable fishing tackle merchants that have websites ... some are more reputable, than others ... or, perhaps someone at the catskill flyfishing center and museum ( http://www.cffcm.net ) can point you in the right direction ...
good luck ... tele

Make sure you have a certification before you buy, there are more "supposidley tied by ....." than actually tied by on the market.
Flick's may go higher since his volume was nowhere near the Dette's.
