Dan Blanton’s Whistler fly, dubbed for the sound generated by the open hole in the pinhole eyes as it sailed through the air, is typical of the more densely tied West Coast saltwater patterns. Blanton engineered the fly to emulate a bucktail jig used for striped bass in San Francisco Bay, tying the fly "in the round" (i.e. without contrasting topping) to ensure a proper profile no matter the viewing angle.

Jay Nicholas ties a classic West Coast salmon pattern, the Ramone Salmon Killer. You can vary how much material you use with your flies — fuller in high muddy water, sparser in low clear conditions. Jay’s variation uses flat braid for half of the body, and the traditional version uses a full chenille body.

Different beads for different flies.

Salmon fly love.
