Hello,

Can someone give me the measurements from the top of the pin to the arcs a salmon fly scale,

I want to reproduce one and cannot find the measurements anywhere i keep getting different numbers.

i was hoping someone may have a list of what the measurements should be or is there a book i can buy that

has them in it.

 

Thanks in advance

Have you noticed the inches that are marked on the sides? I presume you are talking about the HB scale.

I did notice the inches and put it into cadd and spent some time calculating the percentage the lines were between the inch marks and created one

but then i found measurements in the back of Classic salmon fly patterns and it does not match what i came up with. I have attached a pdf so you can see the difference.

Classic salmon fly patterns by Radencich (its a new book has some pictures of old plates in it), it has the scale broke down in the back starting with a size 12 at 7/16" and a size 10/0 at 3-1/2" and it basically increases by 1/6" up to size 3 then by 1/8" up to size 5/0 then by 1/4" up to 10/0. i am getting ready to tie my first fly and am just trying to get things figured out. Plus if i can get accurate numbers i can post the pdf to scale for all to have.

You can use the true size HB hooks that are printed in that same book, to measure the correct length.
