Going to be hitting my favorite salmon rivers. Silvers are showing up. Have one of my favorite flies on some of the slots we fish that are still tidal flux. Has landed everything from steelhead to kings. My own shrimp creation, but sure there are others out there that tie something similar.

It's actually an old favorite of mine. I've tried tying different ones that were a bit different (more epoxy on them). Sent Fred some of those. They just never produced as well as that one does. I've tied them in chartruese for chums and silvers as well. Great fly.
