Squamish Poacher – Joe Kambietz

I love these big prawns for throwing at the Pacific salmon species. The Squamish Poacher is a pretty standard prawn in a number of colors, greens, orange and black seem to occupy quite a few boxes. The Laser Wrap might be tough to get your hands on these days as last I had heard, the company that produced it was no longer in the Laser Wrap business (please let me know if this has changed). If you plan to make a few of these, I would suggest cutting a template for the carapice shape and have them cut out ahead of time. Looking forward to seeing more big flies from Joe at Fantastic Flies.

Foxy Coho

Here is a cool BAF Coho / Steelhead tube that uses the tiny ostrich spey hackle. I haven’t used them myself, but they do look pretty cool, like some cherry marabou. The fox wing is awesome for building strong flies, and the method used here will ensure this fly can be pounded on by the strong runs showing up on the west coast this year. Really well tied fly, and the Norvise is put to good use in many situations here. check out oncorhynchuskisutch’s YouTube channel for more video. Would love to see much more from him in the future.
