Dr. T.E. Pryce-Tannatt was the protege of late 19th century authors & dressers who briefly yet surely revived the legacy of gaudy flies in early 20th century. His book "How to Dress Salmon Flies" is another MUST-HAVE among salmon fly enthusiasts. It's very concise and educational, as if I'm taking a freshman class in college. His book also contains beautiful colored plates, which are quite inspirational and thematic to work on.Following the successful dressing and mounting of Plate 1, I worked on Plates 3 & 4. In these two plates, a set of 3 flies are shown in the particular order; the largest one on top and the smallest on the bottom. Although I did not use exactly the same hooks, I did use different hook sizes to follow the order. Individual fly pictures are posted in the other page. Plate 3 In the book, these flies are dressed in 7/0, 6/0, and 5/0 respectively. Those are giant hooks!! For this set, I used Partridge of Redditch CS 10/3 sizes 3/0, 2/0, and 1/0 (from top to bottom). This arrangement perfectly matches the sizes in the book. Sir Richard seems the least colorful among three but it contains lots of feathers in married wings. Then I'm very satisfied with how Benchill and Childers came out. 15"tall x 7"wide PRICE: $299.99

In the book, three flies in Plate 4 are said to be dressed on Dee hooks - extra long shank hooks. I did use a Dee hook = Harrison Bartleet Dee 3/0 for Helmsdale Doctor. Rest of two were dressed in Harrison Bartleet 4/0 and Francis Francis 3/0, respectively. These straight shank hooks follow the hook size order quite well. All of these three contain very colorful wings. 15"tall x 7"wide PRICE: $299.99

Here are the set of two. I used the identical shadow box and the same methods of mounting. Mat measurements are practically identical as well. I used plastic sticks and special glues to place flies practically permanently. How about obtaining both as a set??
