October Copper
Mark Willigar Flies

Just a little home grown pattern, the copper is the key, not a lot of traditional fly pattern options for the color of copper, other than the Copper Killer. This fly produced 2 salmon the first day I used it. Copper is a color that salmon that are used to flies, don't see very often and may be different enough to attract the salmon's interest, especially on a sunny October day.
