There a lot of ad's but otherwise I think those of you who tie Classic Salmon Flies will appreciate this.

I bought the video when it first hit the market and enjoyed watching one of the world's great tyers...her...not him (Alex Simpson)

Delightful lady and I consider myself fortunate to have some of her flies...including her pattern the Brora.

That’s very cool SalarMan.  Have seen the above and read her biography.

George it sounds like you also might be a collector as well as a tyer?  If so do you display the flies you collect?  I'd love to see a  photo-

I'm not a collector in the traditional sense, just accumulated "stuff" over the years...but I'll make a point of taking a couple of photos and posting them Dean. It will probably be a few days.

Dean -
Here are some quickie photos of a few flies I have around the office. They are from Poul Jorgensen, Megan Boyd, Gordon"Gordeaux" Chesney, Harry Lemire, Jon Kopczyk, Ron Alcott, Geert Werbrouck, and me too. Don't know if they will all fit in one post, but if not I'll add a second.

Thanks for that George- to my mind Classic Flies are works of art!

My pleasure Dean. Always fun to share my past with my fellow tyers and fly fishermen.

Food for thought...While I agree with you on the art thing, it was John Veniard who expressed the opinion tying flies is a craft, not an art. When I look at some of the work people turn out with fur, feathers, silk, etc, one can't help but think "Art".
