Many of you will know Gary Tanner as the man who has provided auction services at many MSA events in recent years. HIs talents, though, go far beyond auctioneering. Gary is a craftsman extraordinaire, and a very accomplished fly tier with special expertise in the old feather wing patterns. For some time Gary’s interests have been focused on the Miramichi where he is building his own camp in Boiestown.
For this auction Gary has created this 14×12 shadow box. It features a limited addition salmon print of a fish taken back in the 1990s on the Miramichi along with 5 feather wing salmon flies. These patterns are both from the U.K. and from New Brunswick, and were popular years ago. They are certainly still beautiful today.
Gary cut the black cherry from his own backyard woodlot and milled it himself. He also did all aspects of the framing and matting. The black cherry has a natural, satin, poly finish, and it makes a very handsome presentation. This lovely tribute to the Miramichi would look great in home, office, or camp.
Note the special buy it now offer.
