The majority of the Fantasy Flies sold are the giant 14/0 trout flies mounted as desk sets, mantle mounts, or wall mounts. Most are purchased as gifts for the hard-to-buy-for fly fisherman who has every gadget imaginable, including enough rods and reels to outfit a shop. The Fantasy Fly sits on the desk at the office to remind him or her the big one is waiting just for them, or to get the fishing conversations going. Fly shops, guide services, restaurants, and gift shops have taken advantage of the wonderful advertising possibilities of Fantasy Flies.
