About the Author

"Raised among the wonderful trout lochs of Orkney, Stan Headley has been a passionate fly fisherman for over 30 years. His expert knowledge of Scottish wild trout derives from a study of all aspects of trout behaviour and ecology, for he is firmly convinced that to understand the way of your quarry is to be a better angler.

Stan has also spend the last 21 years trying to master fly fishing for salmon, an art which he freely admits is difficult, frustrating and often illogical! He is a former Scottish National Fly Fishing Champion and continues to represent his country in international fly fishing matches.

He is a regular contributor to Trout & Salmon magazine and other fishing journals and his contributions to the angling press over the past 23 years have made him a familiar name to trout fisherman in Britain. His fly-tying talents (as the colour plates in his book Trout & Salmon Flies of Scotland show) have established him as one of the best 'traditional wet fly' tyers of modern times. He has also created many innovative fly patterns, some of which, such as the Doobry, Fast Eddie, Palmered March Brown and West Daddy, have become standards."
