Fishing flies

From: Mark Vine <vpackthread>
Date: Friday, January 10, 2003
Has anyone had any experience with the preservation of fishing flies
and the paper packets they come in. This enquiry is placed on behalf
of a collector with many thousand rare flies. Most of the collection
is still in the original paper wrappers and the collector is looking
for the best way to preserve both the original wrappers and the
flies themselves which combine metal and original feathers.

The collector is concerned about the ethical issues of removing the
flies from their original wrappers. Most of the salmon flies date
back to the late 19th century.
