Overview

Inventive and effective fly patterns guaranteed to reel in even the most discriminating catch

Celebrated salmon-fishing experts from across the globe contribute to this collection that showcases the very best contemporary fly patterns from Canada, Scotland, Iceland, Ireland, Norway, Russia, and Germany.
