I love the box and set, but don’t have a T.H. Chubb Rod Co.catalog to date these flies. I probably overpaid when the 21% premium is factored in, but you just don’t see these come up very often at auction.

The library does have a 1908 THC Rod Co. catalog which I’ll order if the flies are listed.
Thanks for your help.

In 1891 Chubb sold the company to Montague City Rod Co. and the name was changed "Thos. H. Chubb" to "T.H. Chubb Rod Co." So this gives you a starting point.

Here's the 1895 Chubb catalog. Scroll down 70 or so pages into the fly section.

Here's the 1891 Chubb catalog, likely before the purchase by Montague, but it contains nice COLOR plates of all the available flies down near the bottom. The reels are nicely represented in both catalogs, as well.
