    Default King salmon flies

    Hello fellow King Salmon flyfishers.

    I have a proposal for anyone interested.

    I have tied a few unique King Salmon flies and am looking for a couple volunteers to give them a try.

    As soon as you see the flies you will know how to make your own but my point is that I want people to catch a King or two on the ones I have made.

    I want people to say they caught a King on one of RMillers flys.

    If you are interested post here please and I will send you a fly or two.

    My plan is to give 2 flys to five different people.

    These flys are an egg pattern. pretty much a version of glow bug. I did not come up with these myself but I have only ever seen them one time by a traveling fly salesman so to speak. After seeing them the first time I tied my own version of them and have caught one King on them at Willow creek.

    There is no motive to doing this except I think it is a fun idea.

    If you want one or two let me know.

    Also if you want them customized let me know.

    If you would prefer to fish a glow bug style fly on a 2/0 Octopus hook let me know. Whatever your favorite variation I may be able to accomidate. If a guy likes to fish kings on #2 glo bugs hooks I dont want to send him a 5/0 fly the size of a golf ball. Same for the other way around.

    The ones I have on hand are 1" diameter and tied on plastic straws so they can be used in front of any style hook fly rod or not.

    I hereby dub the fly. "Marks Egg Cluster" after the guy who came up with them. At least the guy who I saw have them first.

    Please respond to this thread as my P.M. box is full of requests for Lil Su trips. If you prefer you can email me at itsallaboutelk@yahoo.com make sure to put Alaska or King fliy in the subject line.

    I sent you an e-mail
    It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.

    Excellent.

    The ones I sent out are tied on a 3/0 Gamakatsu.

    They should work on Silvers too.
