You have to admire the cheek of some eBay sellers. This framed fly is described as “tied on an antique blind eye hook as per G M Kelson”. The rest of the description reads: “Framed antique salmon flies, tied by Philip Jones. This particular fly is called Silver Doctor. This is one of 11 I currently have for sale. G M Kelson is world renowned and even today his style is used widely. Recently a second edition print of one of his books sold on eBay for $150 !!! even JR Hartley couldnt command that price (apologies to international bidders who don’t understand that joke but UK bidders should). These are stunning and they ARE what you get the fisherman in your life who has everything. Ideal Christmas present or just treat yourself. They are priced to sell and can only gain value.” Well, if you believe that, you’ll believe in fairies. A Classic Angling reader, Phil Higginbotham, emailed the seller and asked: “Apart from the style of hook, what connection does this fly have with GMK?” He hasn’t had a reply yet.
