Was just curious if anyone uses or has tried Popovic hollow fleye style
For Chinook? Being from Alberta I don't have the opportunity to seek
Salmon or Steelhead all the time and have yet to hook up with a spey...
But I do try when I can.
I like to use this style with single hand for pike
Because the buck tail is very light and doesn't hold
Water. Lots of great colors and variations.
I quickly tied this one up and kept it simple with Chinook in mind.
Anyone one have thoughts?

Thanks guys.. I'll make the next batch a bit more attractive, I never put a lot into this one, just bucktail, flash and JC.
I was curious if others have tried this style "hollow fleye" they're very light and have good volume in the water, easy and quick while being very strong.
I'll have to give it a go when I get to the coast. Maybe I'll finally get my chance this year, and if not I'll have learned more in the casting department.

Excellent second choice ... first is chartreuse and black, this is a close second for Fall King fishing.
you are not kidding chartreuse and black .you could use dry line they still will crush it .but I'm starting to believe in green and black . the advantage of the hollow style fly is that you can create a bigger profile with less material ,therefort a easier big fly to cast .great looking fly..

I have not tried - but have seen them tied like this for saltwater patterns. The" shock and awe" are popular in Puget Sound for coho.
