The Salmon Fly: How to Dress It and How to Use It is a book written by George M.L. Kelson, a British angler and fly tier, and published in 1895. The book is widely regarded as a classic in the field of fly fishing, and it is considered one of the most influential works on salmon fly tying.

In the book, Kelson provides detailed instructions on how to tie a variety of salmon flies, including traditional patterns and his own original designs. He also offers tips on selecting and preparing materials, as well as advice on the best techniques for tying the flies.

But the book is not just about fly tying. Kelson also includes information on salmon fishing techniques, such as casting and presentation, as well as insights into the behavior and habits of salmon.

One of the most significant contributions of The Salmon Fly is the beautiful color plates that showcase the different fly patterns. The plates were created by the renowned artist, Archibald Thorburn, and they are considered some of the finest examples of fly pattern illustration.
