It's been barely two years since I've been captivated by the world of Atlantic salmon flies. I've never known nor had any subjects like this in my life. First and foremost, it's the art that capture our eyes. Next, regardless of fly-tying skills and involvement, everyone should wonder "how was this created?" or "what are these seldom-seen and gaudy materials?" I finally knocked on the door, not knowing what to see or expect. At the beginning, it was a totally different world from trout flies. I was practically at a loss. Then I met people and books that lighted the passage for me and guided me through. I have learned techniques, materials, and many other nuances. But also my views and personality have been significantly affected. Not just the way I see and think of flies, but I mean as one human being!
