March Fly Salon: Salmon Fry

Discussion in 'Patterns' started by Steve Knapp, Mar 1, 2012.


    All right here we go, March is 4 weeks of miserable weather and many times miserable fishing.... but soon April hits and the Salmon Fry run into the Sound with relentless Coastal Cutthroat chasing them. This months Salon is Salmon Fry. I was going to call it Chum Salmon Fry, but with the incredible pink salmon patterns being created on another thread I didn't think it should be limited.

    The winner is the guy who creates a pattern that sends me straight to the vise and forces me to lose sleep until I get a chance to test it. Looking forward to the patterns and ideas.

    For inspiration I added a picture of Bob Triggs' classic Chum Baby (I tied it so don't get too excited, it's pretty rough). I also included a Salmon Fry pattern I've been working on, untried and unproven.
