Friends Flies

A friend of mine is a saltwater fly-fishing fanatic! Does this mean he catches more fish than me, NO!! :) All kidding aside, he has spent many days chasing salmon in the chuck with fly-rod in hand. Here's some patterns he sent me to view. He said "Blog On" if you wish dude so here's a few flies that I've seen more than once in his fly box, this could only mean that they truly work!
  Epoxy flies are very durable and can keep on hooking salmon without falling apart. A benefit everyone likes when spending many hours at the tying bench. There are other products that work like epoxy, clear acrylic is one of them. Tuffleye www.info@wetahook.net is another option, this product can be cured much faster than epoxy. There are other products out there similar to Tuffleye for those looking to tie bait patterns with more durability. Contact Nile Creek fly shop to see the product they carry as well. www.nilecreekflyshop.com
One should consider some of the above as an option if tying salt-waters flies on a regular basis.By the way, now's the time to be on the Salt casting those patterns to feeding salmon & sea-run Trout. Fishing Vancouver Island saltwater beaches will be good until late Oct depending on the location and river conditions, FISH ON!
