Any west coast salmon fisherman will recognize the skirt as a hoochie. These are, I am slightly embarrased to say, a common salmon trolling lure, they come in a wild array of colours and sizes - even glo in the dark. I was emboldened to use it in a "fly" by the use of plastics I saw in some of the patterns posted here - especially that last Popovic squid. This is fun, I will tie a number for my July visit and will also bring some packages of hoochies out to pass around to interested parties I run into.
Tight lines - tyler.
Still Living Large!
