    Default Salamander Bugger

    In response to a post on another Board, I worked this up as a sort of rough Salamander.
    The fly is really just a Bow River Bugger with rubber legs.

    Hook: Mustad 79580 #2
    Body: Brown Bugger Chenille
    Tail: Brown Marabou with two strands of multi colour Crystal Flash
    Hackle: Large Cree saddle
    Rib: Fine copper ultra wire
    Head: Brown deer body hair
    Legs: Twin strands of round rubber hackle knotted to form feet.


    Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.

    I have a particular place in mind for it this year. I will indeed let you know how it fishes.

    Thanks guys, please feel free to copy it. I will do a step-by-step tomorrow for you, though it is pretty simple. I do not have small mouth anywhere near me, my apologies. This is going after Brown Trout this spring. I think I would fish this right up in the surface or on a sinking tip line with a leader light enough to let it flaot up between strips. Perhaps a black conehead on a couple.

    Nice salamander pattern, Kerry.

    I particularly like the head-on view. Looks a lot like the real thing to me. My bet is that the fish will see it the same way.

    If you need an Eastern trial to go with your Western trial, then I know someone who'd be willing to fish that pattern for you.
