Alaskan Rainbow/Salmon Fy Patterns

Postby WSW77 » Thu Apr 30, 2009 8:15 pm

Anybody got a good source for pattern recipes? Going to Alaska next year and all I have ever tied was saltwater (maybe the occasional woolly bugger being the exception). Any good books with patterns/instructions?

http://www.alaskaflyfish.net/ good all around site
http://business.virgin.net/fly.shop/s16 ... ecial.html need 6 of these
http://www.alagnaklodge.com/flies/battlebunny.htm need 30 or more of these
http://www.akflyfishers.com/battlecreek.html need 6 or so of these
http://www.akflyfishers.com/pollywog.html need 6-8 of these


If you could only use one fly....the battle bunny is the deal!

Plus articulated leeches..purple and pink, lots of flesh flies and about 6 mice for rainbows would be nice.

Sorry the links were not hyper linked but just copy and paste!

Plus lots of split shot...#5

Emerson,

Do you have a link to a good mouse pattern?

Also, why lots of split shot? Should the flies not be tied weighted? Did you use trout beads much when you went?

I made my own mouse pattern..it worked....ask Hugh

We did not use beads very much at all. You need more weight to get down than you can put into the fly. We leaded all of our flies but still needed weight
