Jerome,
Was it Richard Waddington?

No idea on the title of the book.

Eddie.



Eddie

Waddingtons book on Salmon Fishing was imaginatively named Waddington on Salmon fishing

Hans Van Klinken of Klinkhammer fame had another name for his famous fly for Grayling fishing before it was named the klinkhammer.

What was the name originally?

I saw this on a letter written by the man himself with pencil drawing instructions for the fly many years ago in Richard Walkers shop in King Street Aberdeen.

You sure Eddie  :wink I'm sure I  saw something once by the man himself on Sexyloops that agreed with Marc

Jim,
it may well have been called that in some communications but the name on this note that I read was something else and I have seen it referred to another fly.

It was called the once and away, apparently you cast it once and it went away.

Marc,

your go.

Eddie. :z16

:z4 :z4 :z4

or, from Hans: "I called the fly the "Once and Away", since I had a great deal of difficulty in getting the pattern to float again after it had been dragged down by a fish." (cdc and fish slime...  :X2)
the whole story and sbs of the Once and Away here - http://www.danica.com/flytier/hklinken/once_and_away.htm

hmmm, this'll be a two part question:
1) who came up with the term 'Cul de Canard' ?
) what exactly was he referring to ?
