Default Silver Rat

Part of a batch headed to the Bonaventure this summer. Never tied it before, but will definitely do a few for myself and give 'em a swing come July.

Glad you like it, guys! The hook is a Gamakatsu T10-6H, which has become my go-to heavier salmon hook. Their 3H is a nice low-water hook, too.
Dave, you crack me up!
