Wow, those flies are really sweet. I am surprised they let you tie while you are in the hospital. Looks like you felt very creative in there. Congrats on some slick flies. Wonderful tying!

Once the atlantic salmon rivers - at least in Canada (can't speak for the UK or Scandanavia) - warm and the water levels go down, this becomes a GREAT dry fly for salmon. The story goes that it was designed by the Rev. Elmer Smith on the Miramichi around 1967. The story further goes that a salmon came up to a discarded cigarette butt, which is about what this fly most closely resembles. My friends up in New Brunswick emailed me today, saying that a blue-bodied bomber was the fly of the morning. The body is spun deer hair, the tail and "wing" are typically calf tail, with a hackle palmered through the body. It is a great fly and a BALL to fish. I did a little thing a couple posts ago on my blog about them, too. The color combinations are about endless, and they are most typically tied in sizes from 8 up to 2, often on a Partridge CS/42 hook.

Thanks Gary
We dont have salmon or sea trout in Adriatic sea .Interesting story but I must try this on smaller hooks when gray caddis appears .Browns might go for it and this fly probably float like cork ...

There is a smaller "trout" version, Madjoni, typically called the Ausable Bomber, that is very effective at this time of year. I don't have any on hand, but it's an easy google. Oh, and it does float like a cork! And easy for my 61 year old eyes to see!

all right,I did a part of google homework and I like this bombers.I often use heavily palmered flies but I never put wings from calf tail on it..That material is not common for europe and I got one from USA long time ago and after using all of it never order new one.I guided one fellow from canada this summer and he gave me one that was in his fly tying kit.I will go now and tie few of this unsinkable flies
