Gaspé Shadow Flies

GASPÉ SHADOW FLIES

This is my all time favorite salmon and sea trout fly. This is not one of those typical overdressed salmon flies that looks great out of the water, yet hangs and drags when fished. The Gaspé Shadow fly is an elegant swimmer, and it is very deceiving coming across. The profile of this fly in the water is unbelievable. I have used this fly all over the world, and I have caught more salmon on this fly type than on any other – and this is not because I have used it the most – but mainly because this fly is a magnet.

There is just something about this fly that makes you fish better and makes you believe in your fishing. This is a true fly fishermen’s fly. Although not big in size, it is guilty of landing lots of salmon for me above the magic 20lb mark.

I prefer to fish this pattern in soft to medium strong river flow, and when you have tried that, you will know why I write this.

P.S.: All salmologic Gaspé Shadow flies are tied by a professional Danish fly tier and therefore maintain a standard of high quality, in both material and workmanship.
