1991 there's a set of 5 29c stamps called Fishing Flies: Royal Wulff, Jock Scott, Spte tarpon fly, Lefty's deceiver, Muddler minnow

SG2580-2584: in mint condition they are shown as worth £1.10 each; used 20p.  (These are the absolute max values of worth)

£ is English Sterling Pounds

Any idea what sort of years the other stamps are?  Are they round about the same year as the one's found?  Before or after?

I'm finding United Kingdom Pounds
making those 5 stamps worth $2.09 each.
I assume the others are of similar age. They were all found in a book that was thrown out.

I can't find the other ones at all - unless they are part of a series that has a broader theme
