I tied these for a fellow tier in Ireland. They are the four salmon flies listed for fishing the River Nore in Francis Francis's book "A Book On Angling". It was a gentleman called Mr Staples who supplied the patterns to Francis.

Those are gorgeous Fruin. I'm sure the recipient will be very happy. Stunning stuff!

The purple bodied one is still my favourite of the set. Your blend of shades to get that body colour is something else!
