Fly Fishing for Atlantic Salmon with dry flies is a technique practiced with enormous success in Canada, Newfoundland and Russia. There are two primary techniques that are used. In Canada & Newfoundland the most popular and effective method is to dead drift the fly whilst in Russia skating the fly (riffling hitch method) is the favourite of fishing this fly. The salmon ‘take’ makes this one of the most rewarding and exciting forms of salmon fishing that you can experience. On a dead drifted fly the take is more often than not as gentle as that of a Trout. Skating the fly produces a completely different and typically much more aggressive reaction. Either way…watching a leviathan emerge out of the deep and take your fly is a unforgettable experience.
Salmon flies tied on double hooks are now favoured by many salmon fisherman. They are a must have in locations where trebles are discouraged or disallowed and provide an added level of confidence over single hooks.
For many treble hooks are the only hook that provides anglers with the confidence needed to catch an Atlantic Salmon. Shadow flies carries a good-sized range of trebles tied on black, gold and silver hooks.
For Icelandic patterns, where micro-trebles are very popular, we have a select number of patterns tied on straight eye silver and gold trebles.
The addition of a Conehead to even some fairly standard salmon fly patterns can transform them, both in the eyes of the angler and the fish! Our range of Conehead tubes, produced by Shadow Flies, are made using a multitude of different sized cones to ensure that the flies are perfectly balanced and in proportion to the size of the fly. We use standard brass Cones as well as tungsten coneheads and where the fly patterns require it they are professionally sprayed in the factory to ensure the end products are close to perfect. Increasingly popular conehead salmon fly patterns are a must have in any salmon anglers fly box. Made from either brass or tungsten and in a wide range of colours from metallic nickel or silver to fire red they are proven killers.
