The Songo Smelt is a sweet little bucktail perfect for casting out in search of cruising landlocked salmon, brook trout and bass. The fly gets its name from the Songo River in Maine, a short river that flows into Sebago Lake. This was the catch location of a record-setting salmon of 22lbs 8oz back in 1907.

There are a couple of variations for the pattern, one being the addition of peacock herl to the top of the wing. The other noted variation being a green (emerald) tinsel body in place of the silver.
