This is a surface fly for Alaskan Silver Salmon and Chum Salmon, although Steelhead may take it as well. Some variations of this fly are very large (4") and are tied on Bass Bugg hooks. They are clipped without the wings, which on this version are clipped to force the fly to ride on the surface as it is swung in the current.
