Terry's Terror

Fly Tyer: Wrke (Bill)

Pattern: Terrys Terror

You might be disappointed at first glance but read ahead. We named the fly after the Irish angler who introduced it to us in Russia last August. In this size, it was responsible for taking a number of salmon including the largest --- 44lbs. A seemingly simple tube fly (doesn’t even use “junction tubing) that on close inspection reveals two small holes in the sides of the tube. Its a “waking” tube fly, used on the surface. For waking, the leader is inserted into a hole in the side of the fly, instead of the front, depending on the side of the river you are fishing. The fly is normally fished with a size 10 double, but as every one has requested a single hook, I’ve used a size 8 single, Used with several colors of bucktail, but red or orange with black probably took most fish. Use a heated needle to make the holes tying.

The pattern is very simple:

Thread: red
