My first dry flies for the Atlantic-salmon

Last night I was planning to tie some flies for our friends overseas. I have promised to mail some flies for Ed and Ian this week. However I found out that I was tying other flies with my friends at the fishing club.


Potemkin and Bomber - Dry Flies for Atlantic-salmon
From Fly-patterns


One on the left is called Potemkin and the other one is Bomber. Both flies are tied on #6 hooks and are intended for the Atlantic-salmon. As I mentioned earlier I have never fished salmon and these are first flies in my soon-to-be-purchased salmon fly box.

Wait a minute - you're sending flies to that no-account slacker Ian Rutter? While your bestest friend in the blogging world goes without?

Ohh, treachery! (Was that appropriately Shakespearian or what?)

Beautiful Atlantic Salmon dries. Now I can't wait to see how they work for you. Do you have a trip planned?

Tom,

That flattery gets you no-where! Don't tell me that you didn't notice that the Bomber is missing it's tail because I clipped it off with the deer hair?

Oh, well. I can send you some flies... What do you have in mind? Is there any stoneflies in Upper Sac? That Potemkin pattern is actually a stonefly pattern and it is of Finnish origin.

I haven't actually planned a salmon fishing trip yet.

Don't worry about the flies. It's more fun simply giving you grief.

Actually, just wondered if that wasn't some kind of personal modification.

It's fly tieing - you never know.
