The PS Legolas was inspired by the Legolas Zonker flies Swedish tyer, Tobbe Hedin seen on this site. The design is very similar to Tobbe's but the colors are two of the most popular Pacific Salmon colors. I apologize for the fuzziness of the picture. I could not quite get it in focus in the light I was working in and I was experimenting with a different camera. At any rate I have had great success with zonker flies for silver and chum salmon and expect that this will be as successful.
