Salmon Bomber #2

2015.01.29.dryfly.me.bomberHook: Partridge Bomber #2
Thread: UNI 6/0
Tail: Calf Body
Body: Wapsi Premo Deer Hair Bleached
Hackle: Whiting Bronze
Wing: Calf Body

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.

 

Royal Wulff

Hook: Dai-Riki 305 #12
Thread: Sheer 14/0 White
Tail: Premium Deer
Body: Peacock, red floss
Hackle: Whiting Bronze
Wing: Kalf Hair

First time I’m going for a Royal Wulff on the vice. This is a great pattern if you are after trout, it will float forever and give a excellent impression on the surface. I don’t normally tie with calf either, so this was a first on more than one thing

A smaller version on Mustad 94840 #20:

Hvitvinge

dryfly.me.2014.04.16.hvitvingeHook: TMC 100BL #12
Thread: Sheer 14/0 Yellow
Body: Fly-Rite Extra Fine Poly #9 Golden Yellow
Wing: André Brun Closed Cell Foam
Head: Deer

A while back I was north in Norway and had one of these in my box (this was before I had started tying), and had very good luck with it. This “Hvitvinge” from André Brun is a great moth imitation that makes a lot of noice and movement on the surface and will keep on floating forever. I bought a couple of bags with the foam from André Brun and got it in the mail yesterday, I had to tie up a round of these on a TMC 100BL to see how it is to work with. Once you get the layering and tying in of the foam (at around the second fly), this is a quick and effective fly to tie up. Will experiment with some different body/head color and also tie it up on a non-bl hook.
