About this item

"Atlantic salmon do not feed in fresh water, so we are not even sure why they take a fly. As a result, the salmon angler is trying to tempt a fasting population with what amounts to an inedible morsel. Depending on your perspective, tying a salmon fly is either the ultimate expression of insanity or a sublime act of faith."— Topher Browne, from the Foreword.

The Atlantic salmon is the king of the eastern rivers, the ultimate prize for the angler. This volume, a new contribution to the sport of fly fishing and the art of fly tying, brings together exquisite examples of nearly 300 salmon flies, tied by some of the best fly tiers and fishers in North America. Featuring flies by Allen Kay, Marc LeBlanc, Marc A. LeBlanc, Paul LeBlanc, Bob MacDonald, Steve Silverio, Frank Walsh, and the author, Jacques Héroux, this magnificent volume is an invaluable addition to any fly fisher's bookshelf.

Featured in the book are traditional favourites and innovative new designs. Conveniently organized by fly type — wet flies and dry flies, bombers, bugs, and streamers — this rich compendium includes detailed instructions for each fly accompanied by colour photographs of flawlessly tied specimens. Both an invaluable reference and a beautiful tribute to the fly tier's art, Atlantic Salmon Flies demonstrates the ingenuity and creative impulse behind the flies that entice the king of fish.
