Dr T. E. Pryce-Tannatt was an amateur who never had any instruction in fly-dressing. Nevertheless he produced "the most notable book to date on the subject since Kelson . indispensable to the learner; his flies are distinguished by their beauty and finish and his descriptions are lucid." Robb, Notable Angling Literature . How to Dress Salmon Flies: a Handbook for Amateurs is a scarce book and an indispensable reference for the fly-dresser. The book is fully bound in black goatskin, with gold blocking, gilt edges, raised bands, gold tooling, hand-marbled endpapers, silk marker ribbon and presented in a buckram, silk-lined presentation box.
