Start of a journey to tying more complex flies. Eventually, I aim to tie classic Atlantic salmon flies but that’s some way down the road. To start, the opposite page in Ken Sawada’s Wet Flies to the Colonel Downman’s Fancy that I posted earlier has a wet fly interpretation of the classic Durham Ranger salmon fly.
