salmon fishing flies

Tube Flies

Tube flies can comprise metal or plastic tube with standard salmon patterns tied to them including copper tube salmon flies (which have more weight to go deeper faster) or nylon tube salmon flies which remain closer to the surface. Modern tube flies can be tied on fly fishing systems like Tubeology that are even more flexible. These allow you to take aluminium tube flies to the water and swap heads for hot spot colour and size / weight enabling the same Tubeology salmon flies to vary the depth and speed at which it descends across different parts of salmon pools  giving more flexibility to your salmon fishing flies. Tube based flies patterns vary from traditional tube salmon fishing flies patterns like green highlander through newer salmon flies like pot bellied pig tube flies and the ultra mobile sunray shadow tube flies and monkey tube flies using materials that give maximum movement like cashmere goat.

Hook Based Flies

Fishing flies come in all shapes and sizes and vary according to hooks used, you can get salmon flies on single hooks, double hooks and treble hooks. Please check local water rules whether salmon fishing flies based on single hooks, salmon fishing flies double hooks or salmon fishing flies treble hooks can be used. Arriving with salmon fishing flies that cannot be used would be dreadful. If In doubt take flies based on tubes as you can swap hooks for salmon fishing flies according to local rules.

Salmon flies - Size & Use

Recommended salmon hook sizes vary throughout the year. In the early season as this Tubeology seasonal salmon fishing flies chart illustrates in early season size 4 salmon fishing flies with green colour salmon fishing flies are more successful salmon, flies during the mid season fly colours change from yellow salmon flies (try Allys Cascade Shrimp) to orange flies (try Allys Shrimp) and as the season progresses salmon flies should get smaller. During the hight of summer you may be using salmon flies as little as size 16. At the end of the salmon season red flies (try Allys Shrimp Red) then purples colour (try Allys Shrimp Purple).

General

The salmon stops eating when it moves into fresh water from the sea for breeding, it is literally "dying" to  breed and reproduce until it is able to return to the sea. Indeed vast quantities of salmon die in the act of reproduction.  Because of this we are not catching salmon because it wants a fly to eat to satisfy hunger like the Rainbow Trout we are catching the salmon as we are triggering its predatory nature. We can stimulate the salmons predatory nature using imitative flies like Ally's shrimps designed by Alistair Gowans which resemble shrimp based salmon fishing flies patterns or the red francis which using boar hair again resembles a shrimp . There are then  modern flies like monkey tube salmon fishing flies and sunray shadow tube based samon flies using materials like cashmere goat for maximum movement producing ultra-mobile flies which may look like a small fish to the predatory salmon. salmon fishing flies come in with an amazing name range from collie dog salmon fishing flies, green highlander salmon fishing flies, blue charm salmon fishing flies, green brahan salmon fishing flies,  jock scott salmon fishing flies,  munro killer salmon fishing flies stoats tail salmon fishing flies, silver stoats tail salmon fishing flies,  thunder & lightening salmon fishing flies, willie gunn salmon fishing flies,  sunray shadow salmon fishing flies, monkey salmon fishing flies,  fatback salmon fishing flies. salmon fishing flies have been changed over the years. salmon fishing flies are triggers not a natural food so salmon fishing flies need to look like food but stimulate. Don't forget roe egg salmon fishing flies are useful for other species when salmon are breeding!
