"The Dunkeld: One Salmon and Three Trout Versions" Print

  • ON00154 MPH15.1.5
  • Item
  • 1996

Item is a framed print from the Douglas R. Greer Collection entitled: "The Dunkeld: One Salmon and Three Trout Versions," 1996. Includes the following caption: "The first recorded formula for the classic Dunkeld pattern appeared in Edward Fitzgibbon's publication THE BOOK OF SALMON in 1850, but it was probably under development by expert Scottish fly-casters on the River Tay at the town of Dunkeld in the 1770s. In addition to its effectiveness on the stream, the Dunkeld is also considered by many anglers and fly-tyers to be the most beautiful example of this ancient art, and which has become the pattern of preference for sophisticated fly-casters world-wide."

"The Roe Blue & Roe Purple" Print

  • ON00154 MPH15.1.6
  • Item
  • 1996

Item is a framed print from the Douglas R. Greer Collection entitled: "The Roe Blue & Roe Purple," 1996. Includes the following caption: The Roe Blue & Roe Purple wet-fly trout patterns are attributed to Bill Monaghan, a fly-tyer on the River Roe at the town of Linavady, Northern Ireland. These attractive designs were originally created as salmon flies using goat hair dyed purple and blue, now superseded by seal hair and smaller hooks. Until the mid-1990s, fly-fishing in North America was generally synonymous with wet-flies. But as fishing flourished, trout became increasingly selective, which spurred the creation of sophisticated nymph patterns emulating the actual stages of underwater life, plus many accurate imitations of emerging adult insects."

"The Sasquatch: Pintail & Widgeoncollar Models" Print

  • ON00154 MPH15.1.7
  • Item
  • 1996

Item is a framed print from the Douglas R. Greer Collection entitled: "The Sasquatch: Pintail & Widgeoncollar Models," 1996. Includes the following caption: "The Sasquatch is a streamer fly named by North American aboriginals after the legendary BIGFOOT bushman of the Canadian Rockies, and YETI, the Abominable Snowman of the Himalayas. It's notable that aboriginals were tying flies 1000 years ago. Streamer flies are usually imitators of baitfish minnows, many of which were designed to use the feathers of the African Marabou in successfully substituting dyed Canadian turkey."
