Salmon Fly: Wilkinson

$25.95

Featured on BBC and Border T.V. when introduced by Classic Flies of Langhold, Scotland. Tied to exacting Victorian standards by master fly-tyers using manuals over 100 years old. Production was for art galleries and fly-fishing museums, not the general public, as all feathers used are from birds already extinct or on the endangered species list…thus not available for larger distribution. A true eye pleaser for avid fly fishermen and those who may not fish, but who appreciate true art form. When our limited inventory is depleted, these pieces will no longer be available. The hook is 2.00″ in length and the antiqued wooden frame, custom made in Edinburough for Classic Flies, measures 7.50″ by 7.50.” The back of the frame is covered with felt.

Featured in a special program on BBC and Border T.V. when introduced by Classic Flies of Langholm, Scotland. Each hook is hand cut and shaped by master fly tiers and all feathers are from birds either already extinct or on the endangered species list. Victorian manuals, over 100 years old, were used to assure exacting detail and authentic reproduction of these true classics. The supply of feathers has expired,so these pieces are no longer in production. Because of the scarcity of materials, the series was produced for art galleries and fly-fishing museums for future generations to appreciate. Once our limited inventory is depleted, they will no longer be available to the general public. Each hook measures 2.00″ in length and each custom made antiqued wooden frame measures 7.50″ by 7.50.” The back of the frame is covered with a felt backing.
