DescriptionFor the 3/2014 issue of Chasing Silver magazine I wrote, tied and photographed a feature article on Major John Popkin Traherne who was arguably the best salmon fly designer of all time. His gaudy creations inspire artistic salmon fly tyers to date and he was also notable figure in the fishing world altogether. Held a record for one of the largest catches of salmon with a single rod and also the world record in fly casting. Unfortunately Traherne didn't write books or articles about fly tying but his flies stayed alive through the work of others.
