Default Re: Flies for AK. Salmon & Steelhead Fishing

Ard, they're all very nice patterns.

I particularlly like #'s 5 and 6 (same pattern?); I haven't seen that kind of sparse dressing on a Salmon/Steelhead fly before. The Guinea Fowl collar hackle really sets them up. I bet they'll be very effective with a lot of action in the water. Are they tied on smaller hooks? I ask because of the length of the hackle past the bend.

Number 8 is also particularly nice; I've gotten so that I really like the whole feather wing patterns; GP, Lady Anherst or other.
