Davie's Flickr Flies

I was browsing last night and found some of Davie McPhail’s flies posted up on Flickr.com. Here is the link to his photo stream and a few selected images from the collection. It’s well worth a few minutes to browse through, and bookmark it. Just like the videos he produces, the still images are well laid out and have great photography. Thanks for the killer pics Davie!

I just discovered this great collection of spey flies tied and photographed by Robert J. Brown. The collection boasts 68 flies in a book styled site. This should keep you spey tyers busy for a bit. Turn you speakers up and enjoy. Рhttp://www.elilabs.com/~rj/fishing/flies/spey/title_page.html
