Salmon fishing & fly tying on the Miramichi...

Wednesday, 9 May 2012

Switching gears... or at least attempting to...

After the last couple months of tying nothing but large flashy flies for spring salmon it's time to switch gears and start thinking about brookies and brights ...


 (Size 14 Mustad S82-3906B Signature Series)


Carter Bugs on Size 10 Mustad 9672 streamer hooks
Green Machines on Size 8 Mustad R50-94840 dry hooks
Big old hook is Size 3/0 Partridge CS10/1 Bartleet Traditional hooks (one of my main black salmon hooks)

These are rough but i'll get used to tying on smaller sizes soon enough!
