Friday Night Flies – CoHoly Grail Salmon Fly

Friday Night Flies - CoHoly Grail Salmon Fly

Friday Night Flies – CoHoly Grail Salmon Fly

The CoHoly Grail Salmon Fly was derived from the famous JIC Streamer. I used similar attributes with a bit more bulk and size. This fly has incredible movement in the water while holding its center of mass. The use of UV materials makes this fly stand out among others. This fly was developed for chasing both Coho Salmon and Chum Salmon while fly fishing with large single hand fly rods and or Spey fly rods. Depending on the depth and water flow you may need to add weight to the body or head of the fly so that it remains in the target zone. The target zone with this fly is the bottom 3rd of the water column. Enjoy and make sure you share your pictures of fish caught with this fly.

Material list:

Hook – 3/0 sproat
Body – Superfly crystal Chenille Small Silver doctor blue
Head – Pink Craft Fur, Pink Lady Amherst
Wing – Flashabou Silver doctor blue
Collar – Diamond Dub Pink
Bead – Copper 1/4

Friday Night Flies – Frost Bite Fly

Streamers are patterns tied to imitate a larger food source such as a leech or bait fish rather than a small aquatic insect. Depending on the fish species you are targeting, a streamer can be as small as #8 micro bugger or something as large as a ten inch shad pattern. For trout, streamers normally do not go much bigger than a few inches in length. Once anglers achieve success with streamers, they often focus intently on fishing big flies. The reason is simple, and well known: big flies catch big fish. There’s also a rush that comes with streamer fishing that does not come with other brands of fly fishing. Since you are trying to imitate a bait fish or similar food source that is swimming in the water column, an active retrieve is preferred rather than just a dead drift. A dead drift can still be very effective so do not put that tactic away completely, but rather think more of an erratic swimming retrieve.When streamer fishing, it is not necessary to get your fly to the stream bottom as in nymphing, but it is necessary to get it down in the water column and into the strike zone.

Material list:

Hook: Mustad size 6 streamer
Thread: 140 UTC white
Tail: Superfly pink deer belly hair
Belly: Superfly chartreuse diamond dubbing
Attractor: Superfly red attractor
Body: White craft fur
Head: Fish skull #5, holo diamond dubbing
Eyes: Superfly yellow sticky eyes
UV cure: Solarez thin UV cure.

Make sure to have a few of these in your box at all times while Salmon and Steelhead fishing.
