I would like to "try" tying salmon and spey flies to display in my fly room. Does anyone know where to get some info to start for someone new to that style?

A Pitt fan, a Marshall fan, and a WVU fan are climbing a mountain and arguing about who loves their team most. The Marshall fan insists that he is most loyal and then yells,"This is for Marshall!" and jumps off the mountain. Not to be out done,The WVU fan next professes his love for his team. He screams,"This is for the Mountaineers!" and pushes the Pitt fan off the mountain.

Talk to Eide, he ties hundreds of them for fishing!!!!!!!!  They look like works of art though.

Get this book, its pricey but gives great step by step instructions on how to tie these; i have the book. Tying these things can be expensive thats for sure due to the price of things like Silver Pheasant amongst others

Start out easy, don't need much material for a Durham Ranger. Then come back and post your fly and we'll have a look at it!
