This easy-to-tie fly is admittedly, not that attractive, but none the less, as the name suggests, is a great fly for Humpy (Pink) Salmon. Developed by, Alaska's Hank Pennington and shown in the book, "Fly Patterns of Alaska", it is meant to attract pinks as they congregate near the mouths of rivers. It is suggested in the book, that this fly be fished very slowly, but just fast enough to keep it from hanging up on the bottom in the tidal flats.
