Just Salmon Flies
Ever hankered for something from a bygone age?
Ever wanted a traditional, fully dressed, built wing salmon fly, your favourite pattern, something for your office desk or wall?
I have, and for a long time I could never find the quality of tying which I wanted. What seemed available wasn’t bad, but was just not good enough, for me at least.
So I learned to tie these works of art, for my own pleasure to begin with, to push the boundaries of the art, so to speak. But I was soon being asked if I would “do another one, just when you have time, for my Dad, Brother, Husband, etc.”
This “Something Special” page will hopefully give you what you may have been searching for.
I try to use traditional materials where they are still legally available, Bartleet blind hooks and real silk gut for the eye. All flies are framed and named, and come with a certificate of origin from “Just Salmon Flies”
I have no set list of patterns, what you see below are merely a few examples and a listing of what has been produced in the past.
