Fly of the Month: October 2014


Yes! The Phantom looks a bit like an egg sucking leach but it’s “beefed” up.Introducing rabbit into the tail and body will help get this fly down and to the fish. With the salmon run on, dead drift or swing this fly in the holes behind the salmon beds. Aggressive and territorial salmon will strike at the Phantom as will steelhead and trout staging downstream from an active salmon redd slurping eggs! Good luck!
