BB—that is a great find! Here is the booklet with my dad's commentary. If you zoom in it should be readable.

Thanks for posting the brochure, Lance! It's good that everyone can now see how everything came together....almost 50 years ago....

Cheers,

I was just gifted a complete Orvis Flymph Selection by my friend Dr. Jim Mead, DVM. During this holiday season I'll try to get a closeup picture of each of the ten patterns. No brochure however.

Jim also included an "Old Roan". He said that it had appeared in a Dan Bailey catalog back when.
