Where to Fish This Fly
This fly pattern was originally tied to entice Atlantic Salmon, but that doesnt mean that it wont work elsewhere or for other species. The Atlantic Salmon fly patterns tend to be darker than the pacific fly patterns, but this pattern may be the perfect choice for Coho Salmon on the West coast, or on the Great Lakes.
