BSA Jojo's Salmonfly
The Salmonfly hatch just might be Joe’s favorite hatch of the entire season. We start fishing them in late May on Firehole and keep fishing them all the way through July if we are lucky. His salmonfly imitation is durable, floats high (but not too high!), and the fish crush it. We purposely do not tie this fly with bright orange dubbing, as there isn’t a natural salmon fly in the world that is bright orange. We think is one of the keys to the success of this pattern. The other important things to note that set this pattern apart from many other salmonflies are the overall slimmer profile, the dark wing and the narrow head.
