Vintage Room 2019

For the first time anywhere - at the Irish Fly Fair this year we will have a room dedicated to the history of Classic and Historical Salmon Fly Tying, complete with theatrical twists, whisky and costume. Immerse yourselves in the world of George Mortimer Kelson, Price-Tannat, William Blacker and the other greats of Salmon Fly Tying history. On display will be unique original collections of fly-tying memorabilia and significant historical artefacts including the collection of George Mortimer Kelson's personal fly tying items, the travel kits of  General Beresford of ‘Beresford’s Fancy' fame, as well as items belonging to Price-Tannat and others. In residence will be some of our great international tiers focusing on patterns from the period, and generally getting into the ‘vintage’ spirit at Galway. Come along and talk with our tiers, and learn not only how to tie these wonderful creations, but also trace their history back 200 years.
