I had to laugh when I came across this item on our favorite auction site. I have a desk drawer full of Patagonia trout, tarpon and permit stickers, maybe I could make a little extra income on the side by offering up my collection to the highest bidder?
I will send an entire set of highly desirable Patagonia fish stickers to the first Chum reader who can tell me what the number one selling fly pattern is at Umpqua. Send us an e-mail with your guess and mailing address if you want a chance at this once in a lifetime opportunity! Friends and family of Moldy Chum or Umpqua Feather Merchants are not eligible to win, that means you Saez. LINK

The focus of the Paul and Mary Ann Ford Fly Fishing Collection is American works about fly fishing in America that are of fine quality in both physical presentation and content. The collection's current emphasis is on the spiritual, sociological, and aesthetic aspects of fly fishing. In addition to books, the collection includes magazines, paintings, prints, sculpture, and needlework. The Fords began transferring the collection to Western Libraries Special Collections in late 2003. It will be transferred in stages and will include newly published works of distinction selected by the Fords. LINK
Now you can be fully accessorized at that next T.U. black tie fundraiser. LINK
