Just Salmon Flies
I Was There
I got this idea after visiting a friend in Milan. He is a fanatical follower of Inter Milan, Internazzionale, as he calls them. Watching them as much as his budget (and wife) allows.
I wanted to send him a gift from Scotland by way of thanks for all of his hospitality, and began wondering if I could design a traditional, built wing, salmon fly around the colours of his team. One thing led to another, one fly became two, and this unique celebration of famous football matches was born.
I regret not photographing that particular Fly, it really was one of the best I have ever created. Sadly it is now gone forever, lost in a fire, a few years ago.
The photographs below are of a couple of recent commissions and of a Christmas Gift for my Father who can still say “I Was There.”
