Synopsis: "Scotland has a great tradition of flytying. Many famous patterns have Scottish origins and are now used by anglers throughout the world.
Some of the flies in this book are enduring classics form the Victorian age: the Jock Scott, Thunder & Lightning, Green Highlander, Logie.
Others became famous in the last sixty years or so: the General Practitioner, Garry Dog, Ally's Shrimp, Willie Gunn, Hairy Mary, Munro Killer, Peter Ross, Kate McLaren, Ke-He, Mallard & Claret.
Also included are many of the creations of today's Scottish flytyers: Clan Chief, Aberdeen Angus, Broon Thing, Fast Eddie, Kylie and Muddy McGregor.
In every case Stan provides
the full dressing
invaluable tips on how to fish the flies
and a photo of the fly itself
This illustrated directory fetures the contemporary fishing flies - both native and imported - that work for anglers in Scotland today."
About the Author: "Raised among the wonderful trout lochs of Orkney, Stan Headley has been a passionate fly fisherman for over 30 years. His expert knowledge of Scottish wild trout derives from a study of all aspects of trout behaviour and ecology, for he is firmly convinced that to understand the way of your quarry is to be a better angler. Stan has also spend the last 21 years trying to master fly fishing for salmon, an art which he freely admits is difficult, frustrating and often illogical! He is a former Scottish National Fly Fishing Champion and continues to represent his country in international fly fishing matches. He is a regular contributor to Trout & Salmon magazine and other fishing journals and his contributions to the angling press over the past 23 years have made him a familiar name to trout fisherman in Britain. His fly-tying talents (as the colour plates in his book Trout & Salmon Flies of Scotland show) have established him as one of the best 'traditional wet fly' tyers of modern times. He has also created many innovative fly patterns, some of which, such as the Doobry, Fast Eddie, Palmered March Brown and West Daddy, have become standards."
