Classic Atlantic Salmon Flies

kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

Hey all.
As I live on the West coast and have zero experience chasing Atlantic salmon.
I was wondering if I could get some info on types of flies used in Ontario and Quebec rivers.
Looking for popular Atlantic Salmon patterns. Hairwings, classics and dees.
Looking to tie some up.
Thanks for any help.

As for the book, consider it done.

Some asshole on another site posted one of those today also. I think I like yours better. Clean work and great shape and proportions. Pity about that woodie.

That's really an amazing fly - so perfect. :cool Great photograph and background as well - it would make a nice print.
That sounds awesome in my ears!! (P-A)

This got me going a bit, I may tie a fly again one day.
Good tying Mitchell.
I like to see you outside your comfort zone of the absolute hardest flies.
The classics are my fav's.
This one smokes the chronic.
