A small and very simple salmon fly that I haven’t tested out in real-life yet, but I do think this pattern should give results, maybe in a smaller river on low water! Will tie this up in #8/#4 and #1 to have something to test out when the time comes.

This autumn is really turning out to have a single-hook salmon focus, but relax: I have some double hooks that needs tying as well :)
