Details

An exceptionally handsome edition of this most important book on salmon-fly dressing. 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: a Handbook for Amateurs is a scarce book and an indispensable reference for the fly-dresser. Unfortunately this edition, which was limited to only 500 copies, is now out-of-print and becoming harder to find.
