Been playing a little more with DNA material. This time a lot less material and a siliskin spreader / head. 6" fly on #4 /0 mustad.

Great flies,

Ive been checking the last few submissions out. How do you tie/install the spreader and what is it made of? These type of flies would definately be effective on this coast for salmon

cheers N I

Hi N.I.
I'll respond for the fly I posted: I tied in the dna high tie but sparse. Spread out w/ fingers to desired profile. Fold a piece of siliskin for the head. peal off one side of paper on siliskin and adhere to dna (spread to desired profile). fold over and adhere other side of siliskin. Epoxy head and fix eyes. Kinda like Bob Pop's spread fly only using siliskin vs epoxy to make spread.
BTW: it holds it's profile nicely and swims like it has somewhere to go!

Hopefully John M. will see this and respond for his spreader system.
Good Luck

I really like those patterns. Lots of life. They have offshore bite written all over them. (Tuna & Billfish). :D
