Details

Farlows Strip & Mend Print is based on a Victorian 'Play Bill' style poster.

This print uses a medley of old blocks from numerous manufacturers, including a pre-1888 Hardy's dryfly block illustrating the 'jam knot'. This print block was salvaged from the basement of one of NZ's oldest tackle shops (I had long hoped to find a dry fly block and drove over 1000km after a tip-off). Follow the instructions, including remembering to mutter 'god save the queen' as you pause before you strike and you'll be assured success.

  •  It is printed on 270gsm Recycled Card, Rubber Ink, signed and numbered edition of 60
  • Size: 232mm x 450mm

 Russell Frost is the letterpress printer. A 'Boy of the Buller River', he grew up in the remote Nelson Lakes National Park (NZ) where his love for wild brown-trout blossomed. A student at Lake Rotoiti School, his school teacher's husband was the pioneering fishing guide; Tony Entwistle. After graduating from Lincoln University in 1996, Russell went onto become a member of the NZ Professional Fishing Guides himself, working for Lake Rotoroa Lodge and later for the Owen River Lodge.
