WORDS OF WIS­DOM

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Know How -

“I have so of­ten met ar­dent anglers throw­ing flies of such won­drous de­for­mity, that, no mat­ter what

skill was ex­er­cised in han­dling the rod, no fish with or­di­nary fishy brain would glance at, much less

leave his rest­ing-place to ex­am­ine ... A lit­tle knowl­edge of the sub­ject of fly-ty­ing would save these

anglers days of dis­gust and dis­ap­point­ment … Per­fec­tion in fly-ty­ing is not ab­so­lutely nec­es­sary

to suc­cess; but it will gen­er­ally be found, I think, that those with well-tied flies are more

suc­cess­ful than those who have badly tied ones.”

Cap­tain J.H. Hale, How to Tie Salmon Flies, 1892
