Salmon Fishing Flies

Salmon flies are designed to either imitate a natural food item the salmon is used to eating or to trigger an aggressive response and provoke them to bite. Different styles of salmon flies are available such as tube flies and flies dressed on hooks, normally doubles.
Tube flies can be tied on different tube materials and lengths and can often feature a conehead on the front. Copper and tungsten tubes are heavy and will sink down in deeper rivers whilst aluminium and plastic tubes are lighter and will fish nearer the surface. Bigger tubes and those with coneheads are normally heavier.
Salmon flies can also be dressed on singles, doubles or trebles. These flies are normally lighter than tube flies, with small doubles often being used during low water conditions in summer. Bigger doubles are popular early and late in the season.
