The story goes: that Elmer Smith got his initial inspiration for the Bomber fly after seeing a salmon rise to the cigar-butt he had just thrown in the river! The Salmon Bomber fly patterns was originally designed as a commotion fly for fishing in the headwaters of the Miramichi River in New Brunswick. Elmer Smith that takes the credit for the first Bomber – Initially intending the Bomber to be fished sub-surface, he later thought it to be well suited for dry fly fishing and had various versions of the fly made. Today the Bomber is the number one dry fly for most salmon anglers and it is tied in multiple colors and size, this patttern is the Green Bomber.
The Bomber is very popular with both steelhead fly fishermen in the West coast US and Canadian waters and Atlantic salmon anglers on the East coast. The iconic cigar-shaped body of the Bomber is obviously important and we strive to shape our flies with a well-defined insect look-alike body.
