Sandstrom baitfish is a pattern from the book Fly Fishing For Pacific Salmon by Bruce Ferguson, Les Johnson, and Pat Trotter. The fly, according to the authors, has become a "tried and true" fly in the south Puget Sound as a baitfish imitation. It was originated by Garry Sandstrom of the Morning Hatch in Tacoma, Washington.
