Imitating either a leech, sculpin or young salmon/trout, the Black Death is a very effective fly fished on the swing or dead-drifted. This fly gives the perfect silhouette on dark and cloudy days. With a small profile and the appearance of pectoral fins, the lifelike movement of the Black Death will trigger some seriously aggressive takes from some hungry Rainbow Trout!
Whether imitating a young salmon, trout or sculpin, this pattern is tied in proven fish catching brown. With dancing rubber legs and a hint of flash in the under-belly, the Frag'l Rick will simply get the job done!
The Big Wazowski
Green and mean, The Big Wazowski is known to fool some pretty big and very aggressive Rainbows and Dolly Varden. Also known to take silvers, grayling and lake trout, green is an awesome color, especially when mixed with a little flash and rubber legs!
A formidable and delectable morsel of salmon flesh. Dead drifting this pattern after salmon have decayed a little, is a sure way to get a tug on your line! The Meat Biscuit is designed to mimic the exact color and movement of a smaller chunk of salmon flesh drifting through the water. Head Kenai River Guide Dave swears by this pattern!
Far and away one of the best patterns for swinging on the Kenai River! With lots of life-like movement and the colors of dead, rotting flesh, this fly has a special place in our fly boxes!
You might as well be fishing with a living sculpin! The #Sculpin dances and flutters like a real sculpin. Fish have literally hit this fly so hard, they've snapped the leader! Tied on either a tube or an intruder shank, the #Sculpin will deliver almost any time of the year.
A very solid young trout or salmon imitation. Jr. Schmolty is a perfect swinging fly! Tied with rubber legs and a hint of flash, the slim profile and lifelike movement lets big Rainbow Trout know that Jr. Schmolty is frantically trying to swim to the safety of the near bank. Unfortunately, Jr. Schmolty won't make it very far without a big tug from a hungry trout! Click here to see how Head Fishing Guide Dave ties the Jr. Schmolty --> HOW TO TIE THE JR. SCHMOLTY!
