I'm not to familiar with salmon flies but everyone I've talked or read anything about indicates something big pink, purple or black. A pattern that comes to mind is what they call a Popcicle. It has a lot of pink and purple marabou in it. Sorry, I'm not much help but I'm sure someone around here can give you more.
Thanks,
Terry

Hi mirimichi fisher,

OK you live in a great Atlantic Salmon fishing area. Your best source for Salmon flies is your local fly shop. They will have what is working. I have never fished Atlantic Salmon but lots of Alaska and Northwest Salmon. I think you might have some luck with tube flies. Here are some examples.
