JOHN NEWBURY DELIVERS AUCTION WINNINGS: World-renowned fly tier John Newbury (right), of Chewelah, delivered on his promise of six dozen (plus a few) hand-tied fishing flies on Thursday, Feb. 21. Newbury delivered the flies to John and Gina Eminger who were the winning bidders of a framed print featuring 64 of Newbury’s masterpieces at last fall’s Chewelah Chamber of Commerce auction. “I’m ready to go fishing!” a very excited John Eminger said upon receiving the handcrafted lures. The Emingers own and operate 49 Degrees North Mountain Resort in Chewelah.
