Laksefluer (Salmon Flies), by Poul Jorgensen
Danish salmon fly tyer
By Martin joergensen
Poul Jorgensen is back with a new book - in Danish
Danish-American Poul Jorgensen belongs amongst the greatest inspirators when it comes to classical salmon flies. His book 'Salmon Flies - Their Character, Style, and Dressing' is metioned by many well known international salmon fly tyers as the book that started them as salmon fly tyers.
The Danish book is entitled 'Laksefluer - Bindeteknik, materialer og fluemønstre' (Salmon flies - Tie Betternique, Materials and Patterns). And we are talking about a very good looking book. People who know the two Danish authors Morten Valeur and Finn Dalgaard's two Danish books will recognize the style. The Jorgensen book is even more beautiful thanks to the to the fabulous flies.
Poul Jorgensen covers a series of well known and less known patterns, which guide the reader through a lot of different techniques. After reading and practising you can start tying one of the books many unillustrated and uncommented patterns.
For us Danish Poul Jorgensen fans there a lot to find in the book, and we could furthermore take pleasure in the fact that Poul came to Denmark in the end of October 1997 for some show tying, lecturing and book signing.
