Christopher River King was originated and tied by Contributing Fly Tyer, Paul Smith. Paul reports that this is his fly of choice when fishing for Pacific Salmon. On a recent trip to Alaska he averaged about a dozen Silvers per day on this fly, using every color except black and purple. He has had success with those colors with King Salmon. For information about tying Stingers, see the article by Don Johnson, The Art of Articulation: Simplified Stingers.
