Salmon fishing & fly tying on the Miramichi...

Spring fly time!

I figured it's time to start tying the odd spring fly among all the bugs so I popped over to Doiron Sports Excellence to pick up some trusty 2/0 Mustad salmon irons -- for spring in NB, with high and cold water, this hook is pretty much ideal in size and design... Relatively cost effective as well. It's pretty darned nice to be able to find decent tying supplies in Saint John for a change. Marc and Co are doing a nice job stocking the store, there's more out every time I go over and it's clear they're now in the business!

And here's one I tied last night with some barred yellow rabbit strips also purchased at Doiron's. 

Come on spring!
