Poul Jorgensen Dies

December 6, 2004 By: Marshall Cutchin

“When you feel your fly tying cannot improve, it’s time to get rid of your tying stuff and take up golf.” That was one of master fly tier Poul Jorgensen’s favorite sayings. Jorgensen was author of the classic Salmon Flies, Their Character, Style and Dressing (Stackpole Books, 191 pages, revised edition 1999) and other well-regarded books on fly tying. Richard Ross writes this tribute to one of the world’s greatest tiers on Flyfisherman.com.
