Re: Salmon Fly Tie-Along?
Allan, the reason I used the smaller hook is because my hackle is very short, although quite long. If I used a longer hook, which I have...then I would run out of hackle. I am toying with the idea of trying it again, on a larger hook. But I think my first fly is the one that made me decide that my hackle was not long enough. I have either a 1 or a 1/0 hook. Someone gave me this hackle, and I have it in a gray, and a purple color. That is all the spey hackle I have. I may try this again today, not sure. Now I have the Picket Pin to do today too. I will see how it goes. I also have that other Salmon fly to tie, I am way behind...lol. I may go fishing this afternoon, I haven't fished in ages now. Depends on the weather...
As long as I get a bite, I don't want to leave!
