Guide, and manager of the Tree River Camp, Trevor Novak, originated this very simple Spey fly.
Hook: Salmon Hook size 4/6
Thread: 8/0 Red Uni
Tag: Red GLOBRITE floss
Body: Silver tinsel
Rib: Silver 0.30 wire
Overwing: White Bucktail
Collar: Pink Bucktail (tied over and under)
Early season this fly is a killer for pressured fish that have seen a hundred streamers already.
Start with the big burly Zonker like patterns then switch to this when the fishing action changes.
Using a sink tip and a longer 6-9ft leader swing this patter through slower moving water such as what’s found anywhere downstream or in our Nieland bay or Presidential pools.
