Past Master's Treasure - Atlantic Salmon Flies of Major Traherne

SKU 00016
In stock
Product Details

My second self-publication is here!!

Among all the classic Atlantic salmon flies, a series of flies designed by Major John Popkin Traherne (1826-1901) stands out. However, it's not quite clear how many patterns Major designed. This is author's quest to find Traherne patterns from classic to modern literature and his passion to dress and present them all together.
All flies are masterfully dressed and inspected by a few noted fly dressers. Superb photography on luxurious paper. That being said, this is not just an eye-pleasing photo book. This is based on the intense research with literature, with fly dressing recipes and bibliography included.

I have only a DOZEN = 12 copies at hand as of now (April, 2021), which will be signed and I am offering with a highly discounted price compared to the self-publisher's site (but PDF version over there is very reasonable price with printable quality and can be opened with most of any devices. Check out the Blurb site).

Shipping is $5.00 for US buyers. For international buyers, I will send out Square CC transaction bills for extra shipping fee. $10 to $20 USD, depending on locations.

Self-Publication #2

Here it is - Spring 2021!!

My 2nd self-publication is about Atlantic Salmon Flies, more specifically all & only about fly patterns of Major John Popkin Traherne. Traherne patterns are regarded as a series of most complicated and beautiful flies among all the classic patterns. However, it is not quite clear how many patterns he designed. The curiosity and browsing books & online lead me to conduct serious research. 

The next and the most challenging task was to dress them all. I obtained and used fair amount of authentic feathers. Intense photo sessions followed next. And the final task was to compile all the contents into a photo book. 

I'd like to call this book as my Master's Thesis for my Atlantic salmon fly career. This is NOT just a photo book of pretty flies, rather a reference which contains all the dressing recipes and bibliography that will be useful for enthusiastic fly tyers. 

Very limited amount is at my hand (check above) which will be signed and offered with a discounted price. 

Physical book can be purchased from Blurb, the self-publishing website, linked below.  Book is printed as ordered and shipping may be charged. Also, PDF book - I didn't make an e-book which required me to lower the size/quality of photos - is also available. PDF version is very reasonable and can be viewed  with most of devices. 

I will announce when DELUXE Fly Mounted Editions are available - currently going on. 

As always, please let me know any questions, sample photos inquiries, and so on.
