Premium Quality Salmon Flies, Made in Scotland

>Calvin’s Shrimp on the Tyne

>My pals Steve and Jenny have enjoyed another successful trip to the Bywell beat on the Tyne. Back in March the had 13 springers over three days, which is a fantastic score. The Park Shrimp did the damage then. More recently they had some more outstanding sport with big Tyne fish on Calvin’s Shrimp, tied by Steve who is a very good tyer.

Hi Ross

Have attached a couple of pics of the 20 and 21lb fish caught at Bywell on the Calvin Shrimp.  Vitually all the fish we have now caught at Bywell in the last 2 visits were on this fly giving a total of 18 fish between us.

  The biggest one  was a superb fish and gave a 40 minute fight with Gary Hillary and Steve advising and helping throughout!  The fish Steve has was a 14lb  – he also had an 18 and a 15.  Not bad given the water was so low.

The Calvin is a true success story!

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.
