Tied this one last summer - found it in the bottom of the 'purgatory box' last night.
Probably the most technically and aesthetically complete salmon fly i've tied.

They all look like they'll catch brookies.

You can catch brookies on a bare hook.

Most end Up in the box above. A couple I've got frames for just today, and some i sell. The few that are sold are custom tied depending on hook preference if the buyer - standard hook or hand made, or vintage. Hook alters the price, as does complexity of the pattern as well as rare materials included, but for the most pay i use subs for the real rare stuff like blue chatterer, toucan and Indian crow
