I began tying Classic Atlantic salmon flies actively in 1990 after I spent two days, one-on-one, learning from a master of the classics, Ron Alcott. But I was smitten with them long before, even as far back as my late teens when, as a student at the University of Kansas, I took up trout fly tying and fishing. Around that time I purchased Herter's book on fly tying which included a chapter toward the back of the book about Classic Salmon flies. Even though I didn't actually try tying one until many years later, the seed had been planted. I began working on my first book, Tying the Classic Salmon Fly, in 1991 and it was published by Stackpole Books in 1997. I truly thought it would be my only book on the subject until a rather persistent friend (you know who you are!) egged me on to do a companion book about the materials used in the classics. It came out in December of 2006. Based on the success of the previous two books, Twenty Salmon Flies was born in January of 2010.
