    This is a surface fly for Alaskan Silver Salmon and Chum Salmon, although Steelhead may take it as well. Some variations of this fly are very large (4") and are tied on Bass Bugg hooks. They are clipped without the wings, which on this version are clipped to force the fly to ride on the surface as it is swung in the current.

    This is the Spey fly version of the Polar Shrimp. I have tied two versions of it. In both flies the hackle is from the middle of the body forward. The sparse version, one side of the hackle is stripped off be before tying it in. The "bushy" version would be effective for Kings.

    Popsicle ( Tube Fly Version ) These 'fluffy' bright colored flies work on salmon and Steelhead. There are quite a few patterns in this popular family of flies. Like the Alaska Showgirl, Pixie's Revenge, and more.
