Atlantic Salmon Fly of the week – Copper Killer

The Copper Killer is usually considered a fall pattern and is fished in smaller sizes at that time. It does, however, work well in larger sizes in the high waters of spring. This is a very popular pattern on the Miramichi river in New Brunswick.

Hook: Up eye salmon hook.
Tag: Copper wire and pale green floss.
Tail: Rusty Pheasant fibers.
Butt: Scarlet floss.
Body: Flat copper tinsel.
Rib: Oval copper tinsel or copper wire.
Throat: Bright orange hackle.
Wing: Red squirrel tail.
Head: Red.
