This page is devoted to the hole-Feather-Wing style of salmon flies. Many of the older salmon flies were tied in this style. Long before the Married-Wing style of salmon flies had made their first appearance on the rivers of England the Whole-Wing salmon fly had been catching salmon just fine. Tiers such as Edward Fitzgibbon and Francis Francis designed many flies' using this style of wing.
Today tiers such as Ronn Lucas, Sr. and Kim Rasmussen are taking this style of salmon fly to a whole new level in sophistication and beauty. Below you will find just a sampling of that this style of salmon fly has to offer.
