PD Malloch tying instructions - a how to from 1890
#1
For our members who have an interest in angling history. A set of salmon fly tying instructions from the 1890 Fishing Gazette.  The article was written by P. D. Malloch and was published on January 4th, 11th and 25th. The column for the 18th was correspondents' responses to which six salmon flies were the most popular for angling in Scotland.  Enjoy!

Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after. - Henry David Thoreau
To him, all good things—trout as well as eternal salvation—come by grace and grace comes by art and art does not come easy. - Norman Maclean

the difference between art and a hobby is you can plagiarise for a hobby.
