Re: Glen Grant

I was not trying to rain on anyone's parade and the mans work is beautiful. There is no question as to the fact that the feathers are rare and costly, but $1000 for a fly is still alot of money.

Value for Bergman's Trout 1st ed?

I just picked up a 1938 first edition of Bergman's Trout, there is no dust jacket and the cover is worn, all plates are intact and the binding is solid - any idea on value?
