The Evening Star
The patterns of Major John Popkin Traherne (1826 - 1901) are the most complex &beautiful salmon flies during the Victorian era. Tying such flies is a great experience, a way to remember the honorable English tyers.
Quotation, George M. Kelson:
"Major Traherne is the master of infinite elaboration. There are no salmon flies in creation requiring so much patient work to dress well as Major Traherne`s".
