Charlie, here it is.
Hook: your choice, but alec jackson hooks are what i used.

Hackle: Hot orange schlappen from second turn of rib.

Thanks for the info..... I'll forward your update to a few friends....ah!! Nope, I'll give them the link to this great site!!
Well, to be honest...We gave up on them. I find it's not the classic way of fishing and some are using these in low waters conditions, letting them "sink" and stripping them through a pool loaded with salmon. "not my type of fishing". Guess I'm getting touchy on my fishing, but in respect to salmon and anglers fishing the next day...... conventional flies only. And you know, That's not what fishing is all about, anyways.
So, we decided to scratch them off our top ten and out of our fly boxes.
I prefer a nice dry fly and if there"s no current, then I'll strip it across ( over) the pool or use a tiny single hook fly.
A fish on a dry or a fish on a tiny fly!!!!!!!
Man!! So hard on the nerves!!!!
But so good a feeling!!!
Enjoy your Fall fishing!!!

Just had a couple of lads come back yesterday and they hooked 3 and 5 respectively. The biggest fish was 12lbs from Doyles bridge Pool. Water was "Good" and there were fish where they were supposed to be as in all pools held fish but the better ones held more. The mornings fished pretty well for them and All accounts pointed to Seal Pool as being hot with fish hooked there everyday. As for a more in depth report? Well, thats all i have for now. others may chime in here. my trip is backed up a week as our lobster season isnt over till the 16th of Oct so i will be in for a cold week(18-24) to be sure.
As for the T&L spey? I tied a few in each size as i feel pretty confident that they will take fish. Also, here is a spey fly that i converted from a salmon fly that I put together,,the A.P.B
Ann, how did you do on the rubber-legged wooly worm that you posted on SAO?
Do a search for Mac Strathdee's shop in Margaree, he can give you up to date info on Margaree.
Take care Ann.

Fantastic flies. In a few months when the fishing slows down we will have to get a swap going. Could you post the recipe for that fly so I can make a few for Ann? Thanks, and I hope your fishing is going well.

Charlie!!!!! I need you!!!
Did you see SalmonChaser's flies????!!!!!!
I have the rivers and you the fly tying tools........
( I let you know if they work!!!)
Gee Thanks Charlie!!
PS: SalmonChaser, any news about the Margaree..... people are sending me emails ( not my territory and I know nothing of this river..any fish? conditions?)

As always Charlie, your flies are impressive. Hope to do another swap with you this winter, perhaps.
Ann, Have you tried the Cascade? It's a great fall pattern. Next would be a Lester the Lobster and the black leetch. Also have really good luck on a #6 Black Wooly Worm.
I had a Thunder and Lightning Spey sent up to me in swap last winter from Mike Brooks and let me just say, they are awesome. Cant wait to try them in Margaree this fall.

Very interesting fly. Looks like Fox fur was used for wing, tail, throat and just about everything else you could use it for. Shrimp flies are good for fall also.

What are your hot flies for "Fall Fishing"?
