For the past few seasons this has been THE king salmon fly to swing. The Chartreuse version is super hot in the lower river right down to tidewater. Guide Intruders create a large profile in the water and have the heavy eyes to get down where the big-boys hold.
The Chartreuse and Blue Jumbo Critter is hands down our favorite tidewater king color. Violent strikes often ensue! 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.
Scott Howell's Squidro has been kicking steely butt for years now, but there wasn't a tidewater king color. So we had it custom tied for Alaska Fly Fishing Goods using the Owner SSW Cutting Point #1/0 Octopus for extra penetrating power. Even the rubber legs are a custom color. Go for the win and try him on a river near you! From Alaska down to the Olympics, bring out the 12th man when the time counts! DO NOT LEAVE HOME WITH OUT THIS.
