Tying a lot of flies for Kola Peninsula thought I would share these. I used hackle for the throat vs the hair, I’m happy with how it turned out.

Also, I used Polar Bear and Snowrunner in the tail vs bucktail for more movement & glow

They really pop,nice color combo bight and really stand out. Daryl
Thanks Daryl, I plan on fishing this style a lot this year on floating lines and tapered leaders. In one of the rivers I fish the water is crystal clear (count rocks 15’ down) and I have high hopes for the presentation and fly. Probably go with a very natural coloration in the spring

Great color combination. I think this pattern may be a good candidate for the Gaspé this fall.

Thanks Yooper for showing us your latest pattern.

Nicely done :smokin::smokin:
The Cascade is a big producer on an east salmon river I know ... try one with a green butt too :hihi:
Here at home, the steelhead and chinook like them too, especially in small sizes.

There all doubles Yooper? Is that all what they fish there?

Dan
Good question Dan!! I know very little about Kola Peninsula and Russian fishing, but it seems doubles are a standard.

Yes, those are all doubles in the pics, size #4 ~ #10 for reference.

He also ordered temple dogs on tubes with single hooks and a few mini-Rhea intruders with stinger hooks.

I personally love the double hooks myself for the look and the way they track in the water. Also, the additional weight allows a long tapered leader on a floating line approach as well. I will be testing these out extensively this year for steelhead and Atlantic’s around my parts.

Cheers,
~Alex
