Default Jean Paul's Salmon Fly;

Our member form France Jean Paul, aka JP. posted some flies on the 'Your Flies for Alaska Salmon Fishing' thread and then was kind enough to mail me some of them. I like them all but can tell you that no matter where you fish for salmon the Bunny fur fly with the bead head is going to be a killer.

If you have not checked it out go to Flies for Alaska and click Salmon Flies. The one I'm talking about is on page one.

Jean Paul thank you, and I will be posting pictures of the fish that try to take your flies from me. It took until I had them in my hand until I said, "This will work" and I mean work well!

Ard

Ard: JP tied up some very nice looking streamers. I really like the Nancy Special (I tend to favor the bright flies in orange, red or purples).

JP,

You have my word. I will give them to the fish. You will not be disapointed if I catch a really big steelhead trout with them will you?
