High Dollar Froogle Fly Fishing Stuff
From time to time I like to take a look at how the "other half" lives so I fire up the Froogle search engine and find out what the most expensive thing listed under the term "fly fishing" turns out to be. This time it is the original 1903 manuscript of the autobiography of Frederick M. Halford. Mr. Halford wrote several books during victorian times including "Floating Flys" (1886) and "Dry Fly Fishing In Theory" (1889). The seller of this manuscript refers to it as "AN ANGLING MANUSCRIPT OF UNPARALLELED SIGNIFICANCE". (they used the caps not me.) If anyone wants to get this for me for Christmas it is only $30,000 USD.
