pmflyfisher Here is a picture of Keohane Special.

Will do the other flies now that I have a digital camera.

Willie Gunn Hal,
Yes I was taken by the story, it was a lovely thought.

Let me know when you need replacements for that Keohane fly would love to have you tell me you landed a Scottish Atlantic Salmon from the Spey River on it.

Atlantic Salmon Flies

Willie, How will it look if you start catching salmon on flies tied by those rebels in the colonies?

Safe Arrival

Flies crossed the Atlantic safely, they are really superb

They will all get a swim on the Spey in due course.

Thanks for participating.

pmflyfisher Juro,

Ok, understand, its looking like my job my cause me to drop out of spring steelhead fishing due to major mistakes by others on critical projects. That is going to make me very upset should that be the case.

juro PM -

I have to drop out of all three swaps I am late on. I've already told Gregg and will tell John shortly. Here it is 1:20am and I don't have a prayer of tying anytime soon.

Please proceed without me this time.

pmflyfisher Pmflyfisher (me) has completed his swap flies. I changed patterns doing a new AS hairwing variation which I will try on the Great Lake summer run steelhead this year.

Basically its a hybrid between a Rusty Rat and a Cossboom in my favorite steehead color, irish green. Very appropriate with St. Patricks day upon us.

It is in honor of my irish business colleague, John Keohane, lost in the 9/11 WTC collapse, I have named it the "Keohane Special" .

Below is the writeup on John. Very special person, I told him last year I would tie some flies for him this winter, well here they are, I would give up all future fly fishing if I could just bring John back from this tragic event.

He was a truly special person which I will remember for the remainder of my life. He was to be in Chicago on the night of 9/11 for a three day attorney's meeting which of course was cancelled.

pmflyfisher Malcolm,

Excellent day on the Spey and also better when you can outfish the spin and bait fisherman. Actually, most of my fishing these days is on no kill flys only areas, so I do not have to compete with the spin and bait crowd anymore.

I guess I am an elitist FF, so be it.

Just read on a UK web page that the Spey can rise 12 FEET from the spring snow melt off. Wow that is a lot. No river here has a rise like that, unless we have a record torrential rain storms.

The Willie Gunn Works

Hi Hal
Had a brillant day on the Spey today, I landed a 7lb salmon on a 2"Willie Gunn. I landed the fish across from the Association water where the locals were chucking their baits, which made it even sweeter. There is nothing like catching a fish on the fly when the spinners fail.

pmflyfisher FYI

Neat atlantic salmon fly tying page I just ran into, check it out.

Has detailed instructions on two of the flies in the swap.

Willie Gunn and Allys Shrimp

Also can down load e-books on a number of subjects

See the salmon fly tying e-book you can download for $ 5.

Looks like a great deal. Have to admit those UK atlantic salmon anglers have some unique beautiful flies, just wish we had more atlantic salmon here in the US to apply them to.

Enjoy !!
