Directory of old and modern salmon flies Companion to Shrimp & Spey Flies for Salmon and Steelhead (0-8117-1428-4) and Hairwing & Tube Flies for Salmon and Steelhead (0-8117-3176-6) The tradition of tying salmon flies with feathers is a very old one, recorded in Ancient Greece, but the Victorians instilled artistry into salmon fly tying with their elaborate built-wing flies using feathers from a variety of exotic birds. After a period in which featherwing flies were eclipsed by those made from animal hairs and man-made materials, the popularity of these versatile feathers is resurging. This international guide features dressings from North America and Europe. The origins of patterns, precise dressings, and superb color illustrations will inspire fly tiers to attain new heights of achievement.
