Traditional salmonflies (not to be confused with the clumsy, bat-like, giant stoneflies) are fun, but somewhat daunting to tie. I created this one on one of those nights where you've tied just about everything in the book. A salmonfly was the only thing I haven't tackled in a long while. I grabbed the guinea feathers, ostrich, and pheasant skin and got to work. It's not the traditional salmonfly most tyers are used to tying. Not quite as captivating as other salmonflies. I always use generic materials. No orangutan fur, zebra hair, or giraffe mane incorporated into this one! Still, I'll hang it up on the wall with the others.
