Fly Fishing for Atlantic Salmon with dry flies is a technique practiced with enormous success in Canada, Newfoundland and Russia. There are two primary techniques that are used. In Canada & Newfoundland the most popular and effective method is to dead drift the fly whilst in Russia skating the fly (riffling hitch method) is the favourite of fishing this fly. The salmon ‘take’ makes this one of the most rewarding and exciting forms of salmon fishing that you can experience. On a dead drifted fly the take is more often than not as gentle as that of a Trout. Skating the fly produces a completely different and typically much more aggressive reaction. Either way…watching a leviathan emerge out of the deep and take your fly is a unforgettable experience.

Elmer Smith from Prince William has been accredited as having tied the original fly, made from tightly spun deer hair. Since their creation they have become one of the most popular and successful Salmon & Steelhead flies of all time.
