Re: Last fly i'll ever tie....
I dont fish with these flies. They are for display only.
If i was to fish the patterns i'd use eyed hooks.
In terms of coming out of the water, I cant speak for the salmon flies, but for winged wet trout flies, the wings become unmarried and 'mixed' fibers.
They look nothing like you see them in the photos i post - same will apply to the salmon flies.
Pitzen knot is the one i'd use on gut eyed flies, and even eyed hooks, give the fly more movement in the water.
