The only Jock Scotts left in our inventory are the samples we took to trade shows. There are minor blemishes in the frames, but the flies are in their original condition. For this reason, they are marked down. These framed salmon flies are reproductions of the old traditional patterns handed down through the ages by the fishermen and gillies of the mighty Scottish salmon rivers. They were produced in the Classic Fly workshop which looks out onto one of the most famous salmon and sea-trout rivers, the Border Esk, in Langhholm. Each fly is a masterpiece of the fly-tyers art which is sadly declining yearly as the flies are replaced by the simpler, more modern patterns. As a result they are no longer used for the purpose for which they were intended (that of catching fish) but are becoming increasingly popular as collectors items not only by salmon fishermen, but also by people with no knowledge of the art. Each hook measuring 2.00″ in length, is hand cut and shaped. The feathers are “married” (a complicated process) before being tied and the finished piece is placed in a custom wooden frame made in Edinburough, which measures 7.50″ by 7.50.”
