Default Modern Magog

I put some new flash in a venerable old pattern, the Magog Smelt. Looking forward to fishing it this spring, if it ever gets here, for landlocked and atlantic salmon. The body is Lateral Line E-Z Body Braid over silver mylar.

The fly looks fantastic and yes....it will work. I have often modified classic streamer patterns by replacing original material with new material like flashabou, fishhair, etc. I also use polar bear hair of different colours instead of deer tail hair.

It looks like you have used braided tube for the body. I no longer use braided tube because the fish's teeth often get caught in the braid and reduces hook ups. It is very apparent when using 10X long streamer hooks. When fishing for landlocked Salmon with size 2 10x long streamer hooks, the braided tube would sometimes even be stripped towards the tail due to the fish's teeth.

I much prefer the real metal tinsel (hammered) if I want a nice bright body on my streamer.

None of that's ever been a problem for me or my friends that also use braided tube bodies. Sounds like your fish are gumming the fly to death before you set the hook. I really can't quite picture the problem. But, as the saying goes, your hook, your rules. and of course, the old standby: your mileage may vary.

Thanks for posting the picture! Do you know the origin of the pattern's name? Interesting biblical reference, never thought I'd see a fly called 'Magog'

I've had that happen with saltwater patters but I'd just soak the tubing with a coat of epoxy, problem solved and I think it makes the body pop a bit more.
