Hi there,

I Tie my flies since I'm a young kid, and since last 2 years I'm tying all my salmon flies, But I have to tell you that Spey is new to me. I've been looking around on the internet to see info about that but really find about nothing. Do you tie your spey flies on a variety of size or there are only couple size popular to fish atlantic salmon. Where I fish there are most of the time no more than 10 feet of water in the pools. Do you fish 2/0 Spey in flies in 10 ft of water ?? When I tied some Blue Charm or Black Bear green Butt I tie in size 4 to 8 Rarely bigger than that.

So again What would be my options to fish Atlantic salmon in about 10 feet of water ??

I fish on North Shore of St-Lawrence River, Godbout River, Trinity river mostly !!

All thanks in advance.

Hi: I presume this is for summer/fall fishing. No experience with Atlantics, but for steelhead, I carry and use flies to match the water height and mood of the fish. Fresh fish in higher water will often take larger flies than the fish in lower water. Sounds like you are dialed in on the size so just tie smaller spey flies in the sizes you mentioned. Maybe try tying a few size 2's and see how they work for you. My favourite pattern for many streams is a Lady Caroline, but you will be the best judge of what colour schemes might work in your water. Tight Lines!
