About the Author of  'The Complete Illustrated Directory Of Salmon Flies' Chris Mann
Chris Mann, who died in 2015, had a peripatetic upbringing in which his parents moved constantly and he attended ten different schools. He learned to fish on the gravel pit ponds of Essex, and on moving to live in Scotland at the age of twelve, he discovered the joys of fly fishing. He trained as a graphic designer, before specialising in computer software development in Germany. After many years working all over Western Europe, he moved back to England where he now combined his graphic design commissions with website design and writing books on fly tying.
