Highlighted in a special BBC and Border T.V.program when introduced by the master fly-tiers at Classic Flies of Langholm, Scotland. The purpose of this series of Victorian era salmon flies was to preserve these classics as all the feathers are from birds either already extinct or on the endangered species list. These master craftsmen used Victorian fly tying manuals over 100 years old to duplicate exacting standards used in making the originals. Production was for galleries and fly tying museums, not the general public, where future generations will be able to appreciate the true beauty of the past. The hand cut and shaped hooks measure 2.00″ in length and the custom antiqued wooden frame, made in Edinburough, measures 7.50″ by 7.50.” The back of the rame is covered with felt. The feathers were “married,” a complex way of fusing them together, before they were tied.
SALMON FLY COLLECTION: Torrish
Featured on BBC and Border T.V. when introduced by the master craftsmen at Classic Flies in Langholm, Scotland. Made expressley for art galleries and fly fishing museums;they were not mass produced for general sales in retail outlets. The hooks are hand cut and shaped; the “married” feathers from birds either already extinct or on the endangered species list. The hook measures 2.00″ in length and the custom made antique wooden frame (made by a fame builder in Edinburough) measures 7.50″ by 7.50.” The back is covered with felt. These peices are no longer in production as the supply of feathers has been used and once our limited inventory is depleted, they will not be available to the general public
