Friday Picture

Ross Macdonald sent me these flies last summer before one of my fishing trips. Aberdeenshire-based Ross is quite simply the best fly-tyer I know, and that’s because of the most important consideration of all: his flies catch salmon. If you want to order some from him, get your order in now – his link is on the side panel.

      Good weekends TIght lines. Watching a very very very good salmon film at the moment, the best I’ve ever seen …
