Somebody in charge of displays should learn how to spell Chauncy.

+1--it's pathetic. Novabass--where is this display?

What's especially interesting to me is the bobbin, and how the tube seems cut down--I wonder about that? I'm out in the sticks now, so I don't have Valla's Founding Flies on hand--but I remember in the book a photo of Chauncy tying--is it the same vise? Same bobbin?

I wouldn't be surprised if its at a nice little museum up in Michigan around the Ausable some where. I was there for their grand opening. It's all volunteer-run, so I guess if that's where it is, we can cut them a little slack. But if anybody knows the place and has a contact, and if that's where this is, they might give them a heads up about this.

I'm betting the PA Fly Fishing Museum in Boiling Springs, It looks like one of their display cases, and I know they have an exhibit on Lively.

The Chauncy Lively vise in the photo is in the Lovells Museum of Trout Fishing History in Grayling (Lovells Township), Michigan, near the North Branch of the Au Sable River.

Yes, quashnet is exactly right. I took the photo at the Lovell's Museum near Grayling, Michigan.

A couple years ago, Chauncy Lively's daughter (Ann) sent me a picture of her Dad's fly tying desk (attached)
