Welcome to Macdonald Salmon Flies

My lifelong passion for Salmon Flies has inspired me to design a number of highly successful patterns, including the famous Park Shrimp, Calvin's Shrimp and Mairi's Shrimp. These patterns have been catching fish regularly throughout Scotland, Ireland, Norway and Russia.

My fly tying business is a cottage industry and I am sure you understand that the demand for my flies is such that there is a waiting time between ordering and delivery. Please take this into consideration when ordering your Macdonald Salmon Flies. As my returning customers will tell you, these flies are worth waiting for.

Please order directly from the shop. Alternatively, use the contact form and we can discuss your requirements.
