Upriver kings have trouble staying away from this pattern. At 4 inches in length, the Jumbo Critter gets their attention. Even with a set of lead eyes, this pattern is fairly light and easy to cast. Violent strikes often ensue!
The Nightshade Trailer Trash is large in profile but very light weight. A lack of lead eyes make this one of the easiest to cast king flies. Nightshade is ideal for upriver fish that have turned off the bright flies.
The Pink/Black Hareball is a classic "upriver" fly for silvers, kings and chum. It has just the right mix of dark with hints of attraction. Salmon that have been in the river for awhile are suckers for this fly!
