Default Re: Big articulated flies for salmon....advice please

Here are a couple just to give you some ideas, feel free to experiment. You can pretty much tie anything this way, using a "tail" of marabou on the front hook to cover the connection and fill in the gap between fron and rear hooks. But these are also very effective:

Circus Peanut
M.Chance Flyfishing Specialties - Personal Fly Patterns Library

Wild Thing
CDC Parachute

and the Zoo Cougar on 1 or 2 hooks:
Bob Linsenman's Au Sable Angler: 989-826-8500: Michigan fly fishing shop and flyfishing guides on Michigan's Au Sable (Ausable) River in Mio, Michigan. Serving flyfishers with fly rods, fly reels, fly lines, trout flies, flyfishing accessories, and g

For the big fish you're chasing I'd use doubled 20lb dacron for the connector if you're using the rear hook as a stinger, and use 0X or 1X tippet to fly.

Good luck!
