The one that started it all. The Black & White Dolly Llama is the #1 color for trout and char and is also amazingly effective on salmon and steelhead. Don’t fish Alaska without it!
Dolly LLama – Black & White
Big Rainbows, Dolly Varden and salmon love this fly. Try it out on fussy, lock-jawed silvers. It wakes them up when nothing else will! Also a very good Sheefish fly.
The photo shows the 4 sizes of Dolly Llama we offer: Mega 1/0, #2, #4, #6. Use the #2 for most applications in Alaska. If you are targeting big trout, the #4 has all the size & motion of the #2 but with a trout-friendly hook. The #6 is a great Lower 48 and South America trout fly. The #1/0 Mega has an even larger conehead and bigger profile and is designed for king salmon and other mega predators.
