Time to substantially reduce the library. This first listing contains virtually new condition Salmon Fly tying books.
If you want photos or more detailed descriptions of condition, please e-mail me at dnlock(at)shaw(dot)ca.

Century End: A Fly Tying Journey, Paul Ptalis Beautiful images of classic, modern and fanciful flies with recipes. Good instructions on proportions and the best section on hooks I've ever seen.
1 copy in paperback, small bump bottom right corner ........ $25US
2 copies of the Ltd. Edition in brown leather - as new ....... $200US

Tying the Classic Salmon Fly: A Modern Approach to Traditional Techniques, Michael D. Radencich Various expert tiers technique instructions with SBS photos and superb fly photos.
1 copy 1st edition, 1st printing, signed by MDR with M. Nolte business card
included, as new ......................................................... $80US
(The same book available from MDR directly is a 2nd printing)

Classic Salmon Flies: History & Patterns, Mikael Frodin A wonderful collection of the classics with their history, recipes and variations, lovely photos and history of the fly, inventor and credited tier.
1 copy 1st edition, 1st (only) printing, as new .................... $50US

The Atlantic Salmon Fly: The Tyers and Their Art, Judith Dunham Canadian, American, European and Japanese tyers really show their stuff. Great stories about/from the tyers. This is the book that brought classic tying up front with amazing full page photos artistically presented.

The Art of the Atlantic Salmon Fly, Joseph D. Bates, Jr. If there is a bible for Salmon fly tying, this might be it. Yes, the bible can and is de-bate-d. The history lesson is worth it if not the classic recipes and compendium.
1 copy 1st edition, 1st printing, as new ............................. (sold pending payment)

Salmon Flies: Their Character, Style and Dressing, Poul Jorgensen Had I known what this single volume would really cost me, I'd likely have purchased anyway. It covers everything you need to get started and correct what you struggle with.
1 copy 1st edition, 1st printing, tiny DC rubs on tail and top, otherwise as
new ............................................................................. $90US

Prices do not include packing or shipping.
