Rusty Rat Double

This is a classic pattern for Atlantic salmon. I was commissioned to tie up a couple dozen over the weekend along with some Green Machines, Blue Charms and Undertakers. All classic fodder to chuck at New Brunswick salmon. Doubles are nice to use as I find they ride with better balance in the water compared to a single. Just be sure to check with regulations to be sure they are permitted before you fill a box.

East Coast Butterfly

The Majestic Butterfly
The Majestic Butterfly
The Butterfly is a popular fly for Atlantic Salmon. I should really bring up East Coast flies more often. They have some unique character that you can only find out east. Interesting enough, it was a Florida man by the name of Maurice Ingalls who developed the fly and brought it to fish the mighty Miramichi in New Brunswick. The fly is now popular across the Maritimes and can be found being flung on rivers all over. The spilt wing design creates a pulsing action and is said to drive the fish nuts.
