Century end

a fly tying journey, some originals, some traditionals, some observations

Beautiful flies, beautiful pictures. Classic salmon flies at their best. The intro shows some general guidelines for tying well shaped and proportioned full dressed flies. The main section is a bunch of stunning flies with large and detailed pictures and materials lists and the last part is a excellent and very thorough coverage of hook choices for these large classics.
