This is a yet another simple fly to tie that I have had a lot of success with on the late Nisqually Chum run. The Nisqually gets a late run of Chum Salmon that lasts from early December into late January. It should be tied sparsley to improve sinking ability in deep runs, but without being top heavy as in a weighted fly.
