Still looking for Humpy flies? This fly, developed in 1975 as a streamer for Rainbows by Alaska tyer Harry Morrison and has also proven its effectiveness on Pinks, Silvers, Steelhead, Dolly Varden, and Lake Trout on the Kenai Peninsula and southeast Alaska. It is meant to be a candle fish imitation, but also mimics juvenile salmon. Sub blue polar bear for the green for another variation.
