A pattern that eats lots of material and makes a swooshing noise when it flies by your head…We have tied quite a few of these big dry flies for people fishing the Lower Humber in Newfoundland where it is cast on big salmon lying in relatively slow water.
Killer Whisker 1982 – 83 Comes from mainland Canada. A alternative to the sparsely dressed Bomber – Killer Whisker is a fly I would use if I was to fish the Alta River.
We hope you will enjoy tying it. Here you will find a thorough tying instructions
Don’t tie your Killer Whisker on a long shank hook
A fly like the killer Whisker with it’s long bulky body is a first-class case of a fly that – NEWER – should be tied on a long shank hook – but ideally on a plastic tube – The Leverage factor – The weight issue – The missing exposure of the hook – The problems with big flesh wounds in the mouth of C&R salmon…all ads up
