"Atlantic Salmon Flies of Nova Scotia" takes the reader on a journey that tells a story of inspiration and love for the rivers, the people and especially, the majestic Atlantic Salmon of Atlantic Canada through the eyes of the fly tyer's themselves.
The book depicts thirty hair wing salmon flies that either originated in, or that have great significance to Nova Scotia, the original thirty were part of a poster project that will soon be on the market to raise money for the Eastern SportFish Association in Stillwater St. Mary’s.
The book pays tribute to the tyers that tied the flies, and it features over 175 full color photos and well over sixty fly patterns, with recipes, histories, and personal anecdotes from the tyers themselves.

I'm a professional fly tyer, writer and author and have been fly fishing and tying flies since the age of 12. I was bitten by the Classic Salmon Fly Bug back in 2004 and have been hopelessly addicted to that style of tying ever since. My work has appeared in magazines and books most recently, "Modern Atlantic Salmon Flies" by Paul Marriner and Michael Radenich's newest book due out in 2012.
