I had no idea that you could read the book online (I might have saved my self some money if I had ). This will make it easy for everyone in this tie-along to follow along with these pattern.

All,

If you have not already clicked on the link in FISHN50's post, then please do.

Thanks,

Pocono

Kelly,

Tom doesn't show a close-up of the finished grub pattern, but you can find a pretty good approximation of it on p.114; Figure 39 (page numbers are at the top of the page, not the bottom).

Don't be put off by the head in the picture (Figure 38), he tied all his flies on eyeless hooks; the eyes were actually made from gut; tied onto the blind eye hooks. Purists still use this method, but I use hooks with eyes instead; and the results are, I think, very reasonable. If you want to be a purist, then read chapter VII; where you'll learn how to tie on gut eyes.

There are a few sites that may be of help for certain techniques on tying on different materials. I found these three very helpful in the past & there are many others out there in the dark corners of the web

FlyTyingForAll :: Home

Classic Fly Tying -> Classic and Artistic Salmon Fly Tying

"Tying Atlantic Salmon and Spey Flies, Instruction - Cheap Atlantics, Fly Angler's OnLine "

Check them out. On the first one go to the free videos & ck out making the Jock Scott. There are some good tips in the video. I realize it's a teaser but it's worth watching.
The classic forum is just a great site for Salmon Fly or Streamer Fly tying info
The third one is a site that also has a lot of tying info
