Paul Rossman of Bolton, Connecticut, reflects on his passion for creative salmon fly tying and offers suggestions to tiers who wish to "try their hand" at this artistic endeavour. Twenty-one of Rossman's flies are shown and their dressings given. Paul Rossman is a versatile and highly creative tier who not only enjoys tying creative salmon flies, but also enjoys tying bass and wet flies from the nineteenth century and contemporary patterns for the stream he frequents. Rossman's salmon flies display his unique style, marvelous understanding of material, color and technique.
