The Four-Foot Flies of Artist Lincoln Stone

Marietta, Georgia artist Lincoln Stone doesn’t like people walking by his art without stopping. Maybe that’s one reason his flies, made of poplar and metal, will appear in a Cabela’s showroom in Billings, Montana this year. “Stone began tying the world’s largest — and likely most expensive — trout flies last year. Each is 4 feet wide and sells for $2,950 (desktop models go for $350). They represent the Royal Coachman and the Grizzly King, two world-famous patterns. The actual flies are about an inch long, but Stone’s superflies, created in partnership with Atlanta marketer Warren Grant, fit nicely over a fireplace.” Karen Rosen in the Atlanta Journal-Consitution.
