Fly Tying

What are some good salmon flies to tie.

Recommended Posts

Im looking for something simple but not to simple to tie. I've done the Rusty Rat the blue charm and a few others. What should I tie next?

Early on I tied and carried LOTS of patterns for my trips to Canada for Atlantic Salmon. Over a couple of years I whittled them down to the following...Rusty Rat; Silver Rat; Cosseboom; Black Bear Green Butt & Mickey Finn. There were a couple of additions later when I expanded the number of rivers fished to include some local favorites...Tiger Ghost; Pompier; Nighthawk & Green Highlander (hairwing). I found these flies would work anywhere, anytime.

In the fall you'll want some red flies, like an Ally's Shrimp or a Chief Needahbeh. I like a Cardinelle with a bit of flash in the wing. And for the times when nothing seems to work, you might want to tie on a sheep fly.
