Travels with a volcano 6: Corny Gorman's flies

I took with me the two volumes of O'Gormans Practice of Angling (1845) in the Flyfishers' Classic Library (1993) edition. A frontispiece of the edition shows flies tied by Cornelius Gorman at the end of the 18th century. They're quite beautifully tied and I'd use some of them, including the one shown here, without hesitation today.
