Atlantic Salmon Fly of the Week – The Hazel

Paul Leblanc, a well-known fly tier from Montreal, Quebec, originated this fly. Leblanc was the Atlantic Salmon Federation’s “Fly Tier of the Year” in 1989 and this fly was the “Fly of the Year”. Since that time it has been a very popular fly wherever dry flies are used for salmon. The fly is most affective when dead drifted over fish or potential a lie but it can also be swung on a tight line making a “V” wake on the surface.

Hook: Up eye Atlantic Salmon dry fly hook
Tail: Gray fox guard hairs.
Body: Spun natural deer body hair all trimmed to a cigar shape.
Hackle: Brown saddle hackle wound through the body and at the head of the fly
Wing: Gray fox guard hairs upright and divided.
Head: Black
