    Heading to the Alness this year? Had a nice spate and a run of fish this week by all accounts.

    It would be around 4k.... if it was for sale.

    I'm giving Scotland a miss for now so no Alness. I've discovered the joys of local rivers and I'm catching more fish for a tiny proportion of the cost.

    As an example, check this out. This single fly sold for 130 quid. While the fly is in remarkable shape, the price is shocking. I have seen many more flies go for even sillier prices.

    Thank you sir. They're beautiful items and I can understand how collecting them could become addictive... and costly.

    In fairness they were pretty expensive even when new. I read, I think on here, that in today's money a good late Victorian salmon fly cost the equivalent of 80 in today's money. As a child I ruined hundreds of them. I still have a pile of moth eaten remains I've been thinking of dealing with but have neither the time nor the skill.
