I took some liberties with the pattern from this fly which I got from The Millennium Salmon Fly Swap at Furuly's Salmon Fishing Pages, looking for something a bit different. Please visit Jan Furuly's site for some excellent Atlantic Salmon Fly patterns. You should take a look at The Millennium Salmon Fly Swap for Miko Stenberg's variation of this fly which is very popular in Finland.
