  1. Nice flies...they would likely work well on Atlantic Salmon here on the east coast too...
  2. Welcome Tim. You have some Atlantic Salmon in your territory...ever think about swinging some flies for them? Give it a try, once you do you'll be hooked!
  3. Likewise Cphubert, tight lines this summer. June is my favorite time of year with the big hens coming in, though I hear ya, the runs aren't what they used to be unfortunately. I'm fishing primarily the Restigouche and Matapedia these days, and the latter still allows doubles which is nice as I agree, they ride better, especially for smaller sized flies. Hope you have good luck wherever you find yourself swinging flies this summer!
  4. Getting ready with some favorites...will be swinging flies soon!
  5. My guide holding this nice September buck taken with a black francis. Back to the fly tying vice for the winter months and already looking forward to getting on the rivers again next year! Tight lines
  6. Sorry, post got messed up... reposted
  7. Hi Joseph, thanks. I don't remember exactly what took that fish, but nothing too large. Probably a #2 or #4 brown, blue, or crevette (shrimp) colored fly. Thanks Hi Vic, I have more of this video, but I'm pretty sure a few good cuss words slipped out, so cut it short... . Fish was about 14lbs. Willie Gunn...I fish dry fly a lot in eastern Canada when the water goes over approximately 60 degrees fahrenheit. That particular pool is dry fly heaven... water moves just right. Make your way to this part of the world sometime! Message me if you ever decide too, I'll fill you in on some great places to go.
  8. Hi all, wanted to share a video of an Atlantic salmon I caught earlier this week on a dry fly. One rises for the fly, and a bit later, another one connects... Too much fun! Tight lines https://youtu.be/v7ma2xAEqYM
  9. Hey Adam, the pic is of my guide holding the salmon - I've been fishing with him on and off for 30 years and have been catching salmon with him since I was 15 years old. As for your fish - keep that fly swinging! You'll connect again - no doubt! I'm going to post a video of a salmon I caught earlier this week on a dry fly. If you're not hooked on salmon fishing yet (and it sounds like you already are!), once you catch one dry fly fishing, you'll be hooked for sure! Best, tight lines, Doug
  10. Great looking fly. Have to whip a few up and try them out this summer. The traditional undertaker fly is one of my most "go to" flies without a doubt...
  11. Hi Adam, Nice Smolt! We've been seeing a good number parr in the river feeding away, which is great to see. I am from northern Maine and grew up fishing new Brunswick and Quebec salmon rivers. Nowadays. I fish mostly the Restigouche and Matapedia rivers, and make my way to the Mirimachi from time to time as well. How about you?
  12. Thanks all, FlatsRoamer, I'm 100% catch and release on Atlantic Salmon due to population stresses these days... I'll post some others sometime soon, along with a video (if I can on this site) of a salmon grabbing my dry fly this past weekend... Love you see pics from other folks too Tight lines!
  13. whoops - first time the pic must have been too large...
  14. All the tying through the winter paid off last weekend in May. Hitting the river again this weekend so hopefully a few more repeats! Other salmon nuts out there, please post some pics too. Tight lines everyone
  15. Will be swinging flies soon... Tight lines to all!
  16. Great looking fly Eide
  17. Nice looking flies - tube flies are legal for Canadian Rivers if the tube and the conehead is plastic - cannot add any extra weight, and this year, single barbless hooks only in New Brunswick, though doubles are still okay in Quebec
  18. Those look great Eide - and I would guess the salmon would think so too
  19. Grey fox is the most widely used on Rusty's but any mix of black and white will do. For larger flies, sometimes I simply mix white and black silver fox fur (or some equivalent) and that works great too. This large Rusty which is a little chewed up from caught fish, simply has a mixture of block and white fox hair. http://i1167.photobucket.com/albums/q630/beezmador/rusty%20mix_zpsx7ppafkd.jpg
  20. cool fly Chrome. Looks very much like an Ackroyd fly. Nice work!
