Salmon Flies by Billy Burk

Billy Burk sent photos of these flies he tied. Jack thinks he did a good job on them.
Hey Merle! Just a note to say hi, and run my pattern past Jack for this years' trip. Attached is my attempt at copying a leftover fly from our trip 2 years ago. The hook size is 8, barbless. I think it actually looks pretty good, (considering the source).
take care!!!!....Billy

  1. I've enlarged the photos and I was amazed. These salmon flies look real! A really good job indeed by Billy. Wish I could learn that skill too.
