What are Fully Dressed Flies?

Full Dress flies originate from the Victorian era where time was taken to emphasise the complexity and beauty of the fly

Nowadays fully dressed patterns are not fished due to both expense and the fact Salmon find modern day flies just as (if not more) tasty as the extravagant dress fly. Instead they are framed to show off their full glory, ideal in fishing lodges, clubs, and enthusiasts who wish to make a statement and keen talking point.
