Short take

If you are into classic salmon flies - like the real classics - and like to divulge in their history and origin, this is a book for you. A detailed history of the fishing off the estate of Balmoral in the river Dee, and a wonderful coverage of the flies used in this fishing - some very well known patterns and some, which are probably almost unknown - as indicated in the title.
Features lots of B/W illustrations and photos in both color and B/W, historic as well as contemporary. A true gem for the tyers into these classics.
