Default Re: Your Flies for Alaska Salmon Fishing

This is the Spey fly version of the Polar Shrimp. I have tied two versions of it. In both flies the hackle is from the middle of the body forward. The sparse version, one side of the hackle is stripped off be before tying it in. The "bushy" version would be effective for Kings.
