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, 1947). How to Dress Salmon Flies is a scarce book and an indispensable reference for the fly-dresser.
