Classic Salmon Flies

I recently received some Classic Salmon Flies for fishing from a fantastic tier and gentleman based in Canada called Marc Le Blanc. He sent me some Silver and Black Doctors, White and Cinnamon winged Akroyds, a Jock Scott and a Lady Caroline. All are tied to a fantastic standard and in my opinion would look better in frames than tied to a leader! Enjoy!

Cinnamon Winged Akroyd on the Suspension Bridge at Mar Lodge.

Silver Doctor perched on a rock with Linn O' Dee bridge behind.
Black Doctor on the Mar Lodge bridge with the River Dee in the background.
Jock Scott with Mar Lodge house. Probably one of the most famous fishing flies of all time?

Lady Caroline sitting on a Silver Birch tree at Linn O' Dee. This fly is believed to be named after Lady Caroline Gordon Lennox of Gordon Castle situated on the banks of the River Spey near Fochabers. I'm fishing on the Brae Water this coming March so she will be getting a swim on the waters of her origin.
