Featured in a special program on BBC and Border T.V. when Classic Flies of Lanholm, Scotland first introduced its series of Victorian salmon flies for art galleries and fly fishing museums. The purpose was to preserve these true classics by enlisting the skills of Scottish master fly-tiers who followed 100 year old manuals to exacting standards and used authentic materials to produce a superb collection admired by both fly fishermen and lovers of true art form alike. The feathers are from birds now either extinct or on the endangered species, so authentic reproductions can no longer be made and will no longer be available once our limited inventory is depleted. The hand cut and shaped hook is 2.00″ long and the custome made antiqued wooden frams (made in Edinburough) measure 7.50″ by 7.50.”
SALMON FLY COLLECTION: Blue Doctor.
Featured in a special program on BBC and Border T.V. when introduced by Classic Flies of Langholm, Scotland. Each is collector/gallery quality, with hooks hand-cut and shaped by master Scottish fly-tiers who used Victorian fly tying manuals over 100 years old to create exact replicas (on a larger scale)of these true classics. All feathers were “married” before being tied and are from birds now either extinct or on the endangered species list. The purpose of this series was to preserve authentic flies that can no longer be produced, so that furure generations will be able to appreciate the beauty of the past. Each hook measures 2.00″ in length and the custom made (in Edinburough) antiqued wooden frame measures 7.50″ by 7.50.” The back of the frame is covered with felt.
