Leons Dead Egg Sperm Treble

Thought I'd make up that Dead Egg Sperm on a Treble Hook. I got 15 pouches on it and could squeeze in more at a pinch. Size 6 Treble and white marabou attached at the eye end only. This will envelope the eggs as it is held in the river current and looks well-appetizing for your King Salmon. My missus went into one of those marriage outfitters and got me a pair of tights, "Hold-Ups" as they call them, and these are even better than the Booby Net material.

Note: Before using treble-hooked flies, check the regulations for your area. Many regulations, or specific rivers do not allow treble or double hooks.

Note: Also see Using Overhead Projector Permanent Markers .

This pattern was originated and tied by Leon Guthrie of Galashiels, Scotland. You can see more of his originals at The Flies of Leon Guthrie.
