Charlie,

I've been noticing that most of the "green" flies you have been posting have the look of a dark smelt when in the water. This leads me to wonder if the Maritime Provinces salmon river estuaries have large smelt populations and whether the salmon as both juveniles new to the salt and upon returning might feed quiet at bit on smelt.

I ask because I haven't seen anywhere near the same number of "green" flies tied for use in Iceland (where blue seems to be most common), Ireland, Scottland, Norway, or Russia.

Interesting point flytyer! And now that you mention it, in talking to some of my Gaspe friends over the winter, fishing for smelt through the ice is big for them. Because of this, I would imagine that you are correct in your assumptions concerning the flies.
