I like the colours on that Bomber Paul !!!
- Green body with a brown or orange hackle and white wing for Salmon out east.
- Black body, brown hackle, a moose tail and white calf wing for steelhead here in the GL's (yeah, crazy stuff I know, GL's fish ??).
I fish the Bomber dead drift mostly, I find it really cumbersome for skating and goes under easily as well if I try to wake it or skate it.
I like light, heavy hackled flies for skating, like a Whiskey Jack, Rat Faced Mcdougal or an Irresistible.
Mucilin dressing is what I usually rely on as a dressing. Gink is okay. I have a bottle of Loon Aquel that I haven't tried yet. Good ole' fashion hair spray works too !!
Have you Swung a Spey Fly today ??
