Thread: Classic Atlantic Salmon flies

    The blue and yellow hackles with the gp tippet underwing were a giveaway. Closest I got to the Lee so far was Killarney....

    Figured if i'm gonna post the good flies, i might as well post the bad ones too.

    Sides (woodie and teal) from hell, hook too big, wrong style wing (should be mixed) etc etc etc...

    Anyways, an idea of how a black dose shouldn't necessarily look.

    Better to come soon

    Waiting to see your own aesthetic emerge for the Atlantic Salmon. You certainly have the cleanest lines and proportions on the feather-wing Rangeley-style streamers. What makes the ideal Atlantic Salmon fly for you - where will that setpoint be between complexity and elegance? You have probably tied enough different patterns now to have that real sense of where you want to go?

    I think that fly is a thing of beuty and the fish may see it as irridesance when the water is moving all the colours around.

    are there any tutorials or previous threads showing how to make the loops on these Flys rather than the standard metal eye on hooks...also the materials used...I thought I could incorporate them into some articulating streamers I am working on...to connect the front section to the rear and use the material for the eye???thanks...

    I think Eunan uses real silk gut for his blind eyes but good ole dacron works equally well. You just tie the loop in and wrap back to past the midway point and coat it good with zapagap or your preferred head cement.
