*About Duane Vigue
Duane Vigue is another fine commercial Tyer from
the Eastern half of the US, Maine to be exact.
Duane is a hard core Tyer and fisher of the so
called "Rangeley" style of streamers that were
popularized by the likes of Carrie Stevens and Herb
Welch. His flies are the result of countless hours
on the water, testing and refining his tying skills
and patterns. He not only ties the patterns of Stevens
and Welch, he also innovates his own. Like Marc,
Duane's "fishing" grade flies are wonderfully crafted
and his display patterns are a must have for any
serious collector. Duane's flies can be seen here
and in such publications as the Art of Angling. We
will be hearing much more from Duane in the years to come.
