Dr Edwin Pryce-Tannatt was a self-taught fly dresser who is arguably the most important of the last century. His flies are outstanding in quality, colour and the finished detail is remarkable. P-T is the most respected of past fly dressers within the related guilds and associations and for any fly dresser his book ' How to Dress Salmon Flies ' is a must.
