Atlantic Salmon Fly of the week – Bomber
The Originator of this fly was the late Reverend Elmer Smith of Main. He invented the fly in the 1960’s and since that time it has become one of the most popular Atlantic salmon dry flies of all time. I have not included the colors of the fly in the pattern description since there is an almost limitless combination of colors that can be used for this fly. The original calls for a white calf tail wing and tail, natural deer hair body and brown hackle.
Hook: Up eye salmon dry fly hook.
Tail: Calf tail.
Body: Spun and clipped deer hair.
Body Hackle: Long stiff cock hackle.
Wing: Calf tail extending out over the eye of the hook.
