    Very nice fly and well tyed, particularly the presentation . I fish for Atlantic salmon and have never seen a fly of this type being used. Discounting the lead eyes, which is not permittwed on Atlantic Salmon flies, I was wondering what is the attraction of type of fly, better, why does Steelhead and {acific salmon take same…..just wondering. I might try on on my next trip to Queber, Canada. ‘
    TYhanks, Seth

    Just a great way to show how to tie it, and the pattern looks like a killer. I will tie a couple tonight and show it to some big browns in the middle Limay next week! Thx! Regards from Patagonia Argentina!

    I knew Kelly when he owned the Troutsman Fly Shop here in Traverse City, Michigan. He was an innovative tyer even back then and helped me get started as a commercial tyer. I still tie his Hex and the awsome Zoo Couger! Maybe we could talk Brian into a Zoo Couger video. That would be cool!

    Very nice fly. Using beads to get separation and color is genius. That Peak Rotary is a great vise. The rotary feature was saying< "Use me on the estaz ans schlappen."

    very productive pattern with pike in Minnesota. I choose to add marabou to tail of lead hook to assist with filling the body and offer some added action to the fly. I add lead wire to give some added weight on a some, as well as rattle beeds to acticulation point that I stumbled accross in a dollar store.
