Atlantic Salmon Fly of the week Picasse

This fly is another creation of Marc LeBlanc. Mark originally tied this fly to be an extremely durable guide type fly. And with its tough body vrib it is just that. The fish have a very hard time chewing this one up. This is probably my favorite early season fly. Tied in very large sizes it is a killer in high water. It is also a fantastic steelhead fly in the Great Lakes tributaries.



Hook: Up eye Atlantic salmon hook
Under body: Black thread
Body: Black or clear vrib or similar body material.
Wing: Black over yellow bucktail.
Collar: Blue eared pheasant
Cheeks: Amherst pheasant & Jungle cock
Head: Black
