No reason why it shouldn't work. Great looking fly!

What is the spotted hackle on that one?

that is a collar of black schlappen and natural guinnae folded together and tied as a collar.

Very nice !!

BTW: a FEW Landlocks have turned up in the Champlain trib's and the Salmon is starting to get fair #'s of Steelhead :)

Hey Charlie,put a chartreuse butt on Shaq's fly and what say you about chucking one into the York ??

I would have to agree with you. It would probably work well as is on the Dartmouth.

Thanks Salar, I made one trip to the boquet which was blown out but the ladder said a salmon of 9.6 was released and then we hit the saranac and I took one 14 inch steelie and a 16 inch brown in the high water but no salmon

I did one with a pink butt, maybe tonight I will do one green...
