Chris Sandford talks about "Mayflies & More"

Chris Sandford has recently had another book published by Medlar Press... its called "Mayflies & More" A Flytyers' Guide to the Chalkstreams... this one includes a DVD of 10 go to patterns... read it, watch it and enjoy it and then unlock the secret!
Tight Lines!
PS... What Medlar say:
An actor by profession, Chris is best remembered for his numerous TV and film roles in the Sixties and Seventies, especially Coronation Street’s singing window cleaner Walter Potts, and Sid, one of Tommy Steele’s mates in Half a Sixpence. His international angling TV series, Just Fishin’ . . . with Chris Sandford can be seen on the Discovery Channel. Chris also ran a commercial radio production company and is one of Britain’s best known voiceover artists, selling us everything from bathroom cleaners to chewing gum!

Chris Sandford’s name has also become synonymous with the world of fishing and his collection of vintage tackle ranks amongst the finest in the UK. His ‘Vintage Fishing Tackle Roadshow’ is seen regularly at angling shows across the country, raising money for SPARKS (Sport Aiding Medical Research for Kids). His knowledge of the subject is reflected in his regular articles in The Angling Times and Fly Fishing & Fly Tying.
His first book, The Best of British Baits, traced the history of artificial lures from Izaac Walton’s silk minnow through to the 1930s. Medlar has since published a light collection of biographical stories, A Wellie Full of Water, a fly tying book, Flytyers' Flies - The Flies that Catch Fish and a DVD and booklet - Mayflies and More - that explain and demonstrate the tying of his ten favourite flies.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
