James,

If you look on the fly tying section and go to page 5 there are some classics by a forum member called Dave Medlyn. He seems to know a thing or two about tying these patterns, I am not sure if he ties to order or not but might be worth a try. Eddie
As Shakespeare said, it is better to have hooked and lost than never to have hooked at all.

Hi David
Many thanks for contacting me.
I am looking for a selection of Classic pattern salmon flies in 8-6 single hook size  and would welcome your thoughts in having them made, and what quantity would be convienient to suit yourself .

My fly box went missing late last year and despite having revisited the river area i must now accept that the box is  forever lost along with the above specific flies .

Look forward to receiving your thoughts.
Best Regards
Jim.

PS
To add further injury the origional flies were tied by Megan Boyd

Sweet jeysus. I would need serious counselling if I lost a box of Megan Boyd originals. I feel your pain.
