Phatagorva variation

Nice tube fly colors for lots of conditions. I put in the Amherst tail just to see what it looks like

I do not have any experience with summer salar in the GL's, no rivers close to me that have any salar (AS). I only fish on the right coast for for during the fall.
However I have been known to fish the odd river mouth in GBay for early runs of Chinook
For that swinging, I would say my top producers are:

- Silver body, Red and Orange wing
- Silver body, White and Chartreuse wing
- Copper body, Orange and White wing
- Silver body, Black and Peacock Swords wing

Front front of cone to very tip of top-wing I seem to always stay in that 3-4” mark
