Tied in the Hand is a stunning book on classic salmon flies. Sven-Olov Hård is one of the most highly regarded tyers in the world; his flies are highly collectable, changing hands for very high prices! Accompany Sven Olov on the long, fascinating road through the history of the salmon fly. Meet the originators of classic salmon fly patterns: the Rogans, Blacker, James Wright, Kelson and Traherne and others, as well as the last of the great tyers of Hardy Brothers. Learn about the traditional materials used and the techniques of tying in the hand, without a vice. Then tie a classic Blue Doctor by this method with the help of step-by-step instructions. Finally join Sven-Olov on a salmon fishing trip to Scotland as he fishes with his beautiful fully-dressed flies on the waters they were originally tied for - Oich and Ness, Spey and Tay. Every step along the way is beautifully illustrated with fine watercolours by Lars Sundström and superb full-page images of fully-dressed classic salmon flies tied by the author for this book.
