    Ooh that sounds way technical for my meager ability even though I trained as a computer programmer I still get in technical knots but it sounds like a huge space saver.

    Thanks Arnold from what I've seen of your skills and superb flies you're highly under rating yourself. This is what surprises me a lot especially on Facebook where I see a lot of salmon fly tiers who tie the more modern patterns and there are a few who really stand out as exceptional tiers of them. Every so often I'll get a comment like 'in another league' or something similar from one of them and I think to myself well no actually I think my technical ability is no higher than yours but it's just a different more disciplined style of tying where the techniques are slightly different. Tying fully dressed salmon flies is well within their reach it's just that it takes much more time and effort to produce something akin to the original classic salmon fly but it is achievable especially using good quality materials there is no doubt.

    Thanks Grahame I was wondering how you got on with the stuff I sent you but a lot to take in to start with I know but good to see your interest, as with a few more lads on here who seem quite up to the challenge and are presently dabbling with the basics of putting these flies together. So it's encouraging to see this interest arising and part of the reason why I post these flies even if it makes someone interested in the process and the history and not necessarily tying them it's still a big plus.

    . Once again Mark thank you for all that information it is a great reference I've read it quite a few times unfortunately my son was in hospital at the time you sent it to me and is still in hospital so everything is taking a back seat at the minute but looking forward to getting going when things settle down I'd never realised there was as many classic flys to have a go at keep up the great tying..

    Sorry to hear that Grahame I wish your son all the best and that he gets home again ok. I'm sure you'll get back to things at some point but your son's health is far more important obviously and my dad's recently been in hospital with bad COPD so I can understand how these things effect our concentration and life in general.
