  2. Angling Literature Section
    I came across this book in a charity shop and not really looked at it until now. It's not a cumbersome, boring behemoth - it's short and easy to read. Slightly dated but superb coverage of all types of fly. It's definitely a book I should have read whilst learning to tie - it has simple to...
  3. Feather Wing Patterns
    I tried this Golden Olive from Chris Mann's book but used a more claret hackle instead of the colour in the book. More problems with mallard! :doh: This side looks ok However, the other side has not stood as upright and there's a dirty great fold in it. This is my problem with mallard...

  5. Patterns for other species
    Starting to get a grip on these thanks to Barry Orde Clarke's new book.
  6. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    I wasn't sure what section to put this one in but it'll have to do here. This is another one from the old veniards book. The front body was meant to be palmered using black heron but I've used dyed black ringneck pheasant instead. The original pattern in the book also gave orange for the seals...
  7. Rookies Corner
    Hello Just joined this forum as I have an itch that needs scratching. I’ve used the spinning method for salmon but I want to fly fish. I’ve fly fished for trout, grayling and the dreaded rainbows since I was 7 but never cast a fly in anger for a salmon. Being old fashioned I am looking for a...
  8. Tie of the month
    I have received the prizes for finishing as runner-up in the overall Tie of the Month competition and for managing to finish first in Fly of the Year. The prizes are absolutely outstanding! :eek: I really cannot thank the sponsors enough. I haven't tasted the whisky or read the book yet but...

    As per the title, this is Henrik Mortensen's book about how to cast a fly, both single handed and double handed. The book is in very good, used condition. The pages are unmarked and uncreased. The cover is very slightly raised at the edges (as you can see in the photos). I am looking for £23...
  13. Traditional/Fully Dressed Patterns
    This variant was taken from Mikael Frodin book the 'Classic Salmon Flies'.
  14. General Board
    The Eternal Optimist is a lovely fly which looks to me that you could catch fish all year on it. A stick on, you would think? I make it a point to give it a throw every time I am out Spring and Autumn and never had so much as a pull on it.:( The point being, I think most members on the forum...

    Just got the 2 copies this book from Spey Bros. Top Salmon Flies vol 1 and 2. I prefer the second volume. But both books imo are good. I like the fact it tells you different methods, and different times to fish the particular fly. Its mostly from Skandi fishers, and Skandi river. Iv actually...

    For sale: a nice copy of John James Hardy's "Salmon Fishing" published by Country Life in 1907. This book contains the dressings for 345 salmon flies of the period, and for that reason is much sought after by classic fly dressers. I would describe this book as being in good condition for its...
