Default Re: Looking for some Salmon Flies

What type of salmon flies are you interested in ???, the ones posted earlier or the full dress Atlantic flies... The Silver Doctor & the Jock Scott are full dress Atlantic Salmon flies & they can be very intricate to tie. I know people who spend 10-12 hours on a fly & they are fast, There are conversions to Hair wing flys for many of the old classics because some of the materials are hard to find or not available.
The Dr Oatman & the Yellow are "New England Style Streamers, The Grey Ghost is a Carrie Stevens streamer that is very popular, The New England style streamers are fairly easy to tie if you have the right materials & most of the materials are available
