I'm thinking if you're taking leaving cert art it might be no harm in looking at ken abrames site striper moon

Ken is an artist and a fly fisherman - his art carries into his fishing and vice versa it's a strange mix almost mystical at times

If you can get your hands on a copy of illusions in fly tying its a very interesting artistic journey into one mans thoughts on colour shape illusion - an impressionistic fisherman!

It doesn't have much sea flies but it has some amazing life like flies.
