  • Flies For Silvers ; Need Advice

    I Recently Moved To Nome From North Carolina And Admittingly Know Squat About Salmon Fishing. I Would Like To Know What Flies You Would Reccomend For Silvers. I Will Be Heading Down To Anchorage In A Few Weeks And Could Pick Some Flies Up Then. Any Suggestions On Where To Purchase Flies In Anchorage Would Be Very Useful. To Date, I Have Only Been To Mcaffeys Fly Shop And Sportsmans Warehouse. Thanks In Advance For Any Insights You May Offer.

    Silver flies

    Check with Mountain View Sports They have a wide selection of flies and are very helpful on all types of fly fishing for salmon.

      fly shop

      Yes, I like Mountain View too. Once you know what type flies you want you can order from Fly Shop, Redding California or Cabela's.

        Silver Flys

        Kaufmann Streamborn cataloge has some great Salmon (Silver) and Steelhead flys. You can order a cataloge on the internet. They ship out of their Portland store. Good stuff. My favorites are, Hot Shot Comets, Egg Sucking leech, Wiggle tails and bunny leeches. All in Pink, Chartruse, Purple and Orange. The people at Sportsmans will get you started. Hope you have a great Silver season.

            The fly patterns suggested above are all good. Just make sure you have a variety of different colors. I 'd go to Sportsman's Warehouse because their flies are relatively inexpensive; probably lower quality as well. But I found them to be adequate for Silvers.

              char fishing

              For the next month the char and grayling fishing in your area will be excellent- pick up some small smolt patterns while you're in town.

                      All BS aside, recommend some silver flies.

                      Middle Kenai, Sept 10th, 20' Willie Predator, 7-8 wt rods.

                      What would you throw?

                        Done. I will bring you a few in some different colors. Least I can do for all you do for me. I got the pink/white, olive/white, etc.. at the house now and will be buying some tutti frutti as well. I will pick up a couple extra pink/white and olive/white dolly llamas for you.

                        I was just at the site putting some ideas together and found this article about silvers.
