Salmon Double Selection
The barbless Salmon Double Selection, is a selection of 4 styles of popular salmon fly (doubles), we supply two of each fly in two sizes (10's & 12's), in total there are 16 flies supplied in a free fly box. All of these salmon flies are tied using barbless double hooks, in sizes 10 to 12 using quality materials.
Descriptions and photo's of the flies can be found below:
Willie Gunn. One of the most successful Scottish salmon patterns ever devised. This fly is world famous for its ability to catch fish and is a staple fly in nearly all salmon anglers fly boxes. Used with great success by Mr Willie Gunn in the 1940's, to imitate a hair winged version of a Thunder & Lightening, this fly can be deadly. Selection contains two of sizes 10 & 12.
Ally's Shrimp. Possibly the world's most popular salmon fly (is also very successful with Sea Trout). The designer of Ally's Shrimp is the famous British fisherman Alastair Gowans, who created this fly for fishing at the end of the season. This fly also proved to be very effective in any period of the season and for this reason many anglers learned to consider it one of the best flies for catching Salmo salar. This selection contains two of sizes 10 & 12.
Cascade Shrimp. Another of Alastair Gowan's creations, the Cascade Shrimp has, in the space of little more than a decade, established itself as probably one of the most used salmon flies, especially in the UK, rivalling even Ally’s Shrimp (above) in popularity. Dressed in appropriate sizes and weights, the Cascade Shrimp can be fished successfully throughout the season. This selection contains two of sizes 10 & 12.
Stoat's Tail. This fly has been around for a long time and has in all probability accounted for more salmon than any other fly. Originally tied on a treble hook, and used virtually exclusivly on the Aberdeenshire Dee & Don, the Stoat's Tail fly is at its best in low water conditions in the Summer and early Autumn. This selection contains two of sizes 10 & 12.
