A Note About Atlantic Salmon Fly Patterns

Modern day Atlantic Salmon flies have evolved into simpler hairwing and reduced patterns that have proven very successful in catching fish. The older, Classic Versions, fully dressed, require various colored feathers of large or exotic birds, blended together to make the wing. Some of these materials can be expensive, hard to find, and in many cases even outlawed where the feathers are from birds on endangered species lists. There are many tiers, however, that still tie the classic flies, and it is truly an art. Substitutes have been found for exotic feathers once used long ago. For this reason I have included both the Classic Feather Wing and the Hairwing Version on several of the flies you will see here, and many hairwing and reduced patterns that are also successfully fished. Most of the Classic flies are tied by our contributing fly tyers and we invite any other tyers that are interested to become contributors and share their work. See how to become a member of the  Contributing Fly Tyer Series.
