Who has fished with a fenton fly? Those flies SLAY the fish!!!

i did a google search for the fenton fly. Couldn't come up with what the are or where to buy one. Looks like they possibly stopped making them. Any ideas on where to pick some up.

I would say it would be easier just to get them while your up here. Sportsmans wearhouse has a large selection of flies and related items. Or you could order some from Cabelas I suppose.

The proper name for a corky is "Lil' Corky". It's a small float that slides on your line down to the hook, whose purpose is to float your bait a little off the bottom. They work pretty **** well without bait, too. I've caught lots and lots of salmon with nothing but a corky and a hook.

A Fenton Fly is a pre-tied leader with two imitation (plastic) salmon eggs tied with a piece of yarn. Personally I use a hook with an egg loop and a piece of yarn. Same dif, easier, and very effective.

Thanks Guys

Its totally different fishing than im used to here in texas... It helps to find such a great forum to help us plan for our trip... We just got back from fishing Mexico, so now is the time for us to start getting stuff together for our trip to the Kenai

Thanks again

Thomas and Kaylin
