Our Range Of Salmon Fly Patterns

There are lots of types of salmon fly patterns including tube flies, irish shrimps, hair wings, snakes. Each fly type has it's own benefit; for example a salmon tube fly can have much more weight if a copper or brass tubes are used or lighter if nylon tubes are used. Hairwings give lots of movement triggering attacks where an Irish shrimp fly pattern looks like natural shrimp food for salmon. We sell a vast range of quality flies for salmon for any venue you wish to fish at.

Fly hook size requirements vary. In the early season size 4 flies with green colours are more successful for salmon fly fishing. Mid season colours change from yellow flies to orange colour and as the season progresses the successful flies get smaller. During the height of summer you may be using flies as small as size 16. At the end of the season red flies work well then finally purple coloured flies at the tail of the season with flies well now in the size 8 range.

Basic Techniques For Using Salmon Flies

Upstream Techniques

Cast your fly across the current and let it swing normally.  Keep tracking the fly as it moves downstream slowly descending as it moves downstream. When the fly reaches the end of it's arc, keep the fly fluttering for a few moments as this can often trigger bites.

Downstream Method

An alternative method of fishing the fly is by casting upstream and letting it sink. As the fly drifts downstream there is no drag from the flyline, basically the fly will sink more rapidly without drag. Using this method you can fish a lot deeper than on the upstream arc casting method. Please keep contact with the fly when fishing upstream as you need to be ready to set the hook if a fish should strike the fly on the almost slack line! Watch the leader for movement indicating a bite.

Used these in Alaska for Sockeye, Pinks, Coho and Chum. They turn over a big heavy fly beautifully and did not let me down once. A great product and well priced.
