More about this digital file


The pinnacle of the art of fly-tying is the creation of ‘fully-dressed’ flies, delightfully colourful concoctions of feathers, fur and fibre that were once used to lure unsuspecting fish but now serve to demonstrate the particular and exacting skill of the tyer.

Capture the beauty of these fascinating treasures in stitch with stranded and filament silk over a real hook, enhanced with sparkling metallic threads and enclosed in a glass paperweight.
