Farlows Salmon Flies Book by Martin Lanigan-O'Keeffe

Product Code

An illustrated history and catalogue of the 695 pattern salmon flies of C. Farlow and Co. from 1864-1970, illustrating and recording many previously unknown or unidentified patterns.

Running to 360 pages with superb colour photography throughout, this volume is essential reading for anyone interested in period salmon flies from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, documenting an historic and internationally important collection.

There are flies for England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, as well as Norway and Canada, collected from a variety of sources. There are also important ranges of flies for particular rivers, notably the Spey, Wye and Usk, as well as a large number for Ireland. The flies are a testament to the skill with which the professional fly tiers of the time turned out beautifully dressed creations in their thousands.

"A must-have for any fly tyer or collector, truly superb and will help the collector identify their 'unknowns' and tyers to understand the correct style. The illustrations are of hundreds of original flies! It also contains some fascinating history of the flies and originators." Colin Innes - author of ‘The Lost Salmon Flies of Balmoral’
