Someone's planning on some salmon fishing.... nice ties !!

Not me. North Carolina is a long ways off from Salmon waters. Thank you though.  
These are part of a surprise gift for a friend.

Lineside,

 

Interesting with your recent tying of salmon flies.   My wife is after me to clean a section of the basement (COVID boredom) and today I came across some of my dad's fly boxes.   Bugs have eaten a few but overall they don't appear to be in too bad a shape.  40+ years ago I'd accompany him north in the fall and it was some of my fondest fishing memories.    He used the same guide for 20+ years and if I'm not mistaken this is one of the flies his guide designed that he swore by.  Called it the Sundance. (I may be mistaken as it was a lot of years ago.)

His salmon fly collection.  Couldn't identify any of them other than maybe the butted bear's hair and a couple of others.

Looks like he spent a lot time on Mirramichi river . Btw the Sundance looks like the guides rendition of the Cosseboom like Linesides suggested .

HT, hold on to them. They bring back great memories plus, you never know, you might have need of them yet. 

 

And did your Dad tie any of these or are they all from New-Brunswick fly tiers?

Suave,

 

My dad tied all of these.   Many an evening I'd find him sitting a his desk with a nice single malt tying while listening to opera or classical music.    How he would wind down from a day at work.   Good recipe !
