About the stamp design:  The Fishing Flies stamps picture five different flies.  These are a small portion of the 1,200 patterns of flies.  Chuck Ripper, a wildlife artist created the images for the stamps.  He had previously designed the 1986 Fish booklet stamps and thought of the idea of showing the flies used to catch the fish.  Each fishing fly depicted on these stamps has a background showing a scene typical of where it would be used.  Ripper used actual flies as his models for the artwork.  The Fishing Flies shown are: Royal Wulff, Jock Scott, Apte Tarpon Fly, Lefty’s Deceiver, and Muddler Minnow

Special design details:  The stamps were produced as a five-variety topical booklet.  The USPS began producing these in 1985.

First Day City:  The First Day of Issue ceremony was held at the Never Sink Valley Area Museum in Cuddebackville, New York.  This area is known for its trout fishing.

About the Fishing Fly set:  The stamps were produced as a five-variety topical booklet.  The USPS began producing these booklets in 1985.  Fly fishing is a popular sport among anglers because of the extra skill needed to do it well.

History the stamp represents:  Jock Scott – The Jock Scott fly was developed in England in 1817.  It is often used for catching salmon.  The original Jock Scott flies used feathers from rare birds such as toucans and Jungle cocks from Asia, as well as those from peacocks, mallards, and pheasants.
