Carrie Stevens Streamers Collaborative Frames

Last summer I tied a set of collaborative frames with Don Bastian, 80 Carrie Stevens patterns in 4 Riker mounts, to be presented at shows over the course of the season. The work is overwhelmingly beautiful and was well received at all of the shows. It’s the kind of piece you work on, and work on, and then stand back and say….WOW!

I feel privileged to work with such an outstanding tier AND to present patterns originated by another Maine woman. I’d like to acknowledge Don’s contribution to this project not only as a tier but his knowledge of fly history and his thorough pattern research.

This is a pic that was taken by David Klausmeyer at the Somerset Fly Fishing Show in Somerset, NJ. It gives you a pretty good idea of the volume and variation in this work. The set IS for sale after April 1st and can be reframed into hardwood if requested. The Rikers afforded an ease of mobility and transport, and frankly, just didn’t take up as much display space.

  1. Sharon;
    Thank you for your kind words and compliments. It was a pleasure and also rewarding to collaborate on this project with you – I agree as the number of patterns grew, it became amazing to see the beauty of Carrie Stevens’ patterns coming to life, one by one. Thanks, this project was a great idea and it was a privilege to work with you. You have a natural talent for tying…
