I’m on a Salmon Bomber tying frenzy these days, but I need some other dries for salmon as well, so I figured I could pull this pattern that I’ve used very successfully for trout before up to the big league: on a #4 bomber hook!

Tying this up on size #2 to #8 to put in my salmon-dry box, more about that later. I’m on the lookout for other dries for salmon, so if you have some good tips on what I should have: give me a comment here and let me know!

Salmon Bomber #2

Got a shipment of different size (#2-#8) Partridge Bomber hooks the other day and starting with the largest hook I’ll start tying up a box of these in different colors. The smaller ones will work well for trout as well, not only salmon, so this will be something to test out just as the sun is setting and the trout goes hunting after mice.

 

Bomber for Trout

Tail: Calf Body Delux

Hackle: Whiting

A quick one today after getting these BL hooks from Knapek after a visit to Stramline in Oslo. Will tie up a batch of these to bring along for the autumn fishing, the trout can go really nuts after these, and after just before dark they will be especially efficient!
