King's Corner

It's been said that anyone who dreams of catching king salmon on a fly rod is insane. Well, count us among the crazy! Over the past several seasons, the interest in catching (and landing) Alaskan king salmon on a fly rod has grown dramatically. And why not? It is the ultimate freshwater challenge. But this challenge also requires special equipment, knowledge, and stamina to accomplish. And the Alaska fly fishing patterns you need are a big step up from the ordinary salmon fly. Kings demand heavy-duty salmon hooks with razor-sharp points. The fly pattern must be heavily weighted to get down where these behemoths lurk. And pattern color can be important. We are pleased to offer the most complete and best selection of king salmon fly patterns available anywhere on the planet. Most of these flies are weighted heavily enough to be fished on conventional spin gear as well as the standard 9-, 10-, and 11-weight salmon fly rods. Hands down, the best and most complete selection of king salmon fly patterns available anywhere in the world. We are the number one supplier.

This pattern features a Senyo articulated shank and full metal construction so there's no string to break.

Bead-Sucking Cone Head Leech (King)

Bead-Sucking Cone Head Leech (King)

An original pattern we developed, this is the latest twist on what is probably the most famous fly pattern used in Alaska. The cone head provides weight and jigging action to the fly. Extra weight is provided by 5 inches of .035 lead wire under the body. The color beads actually emit a phosphorescent glow when charged by a flashlight, sunlight, or camera strobe. This feature greatly increases the effectiveness of the pattern during periods of reduced visibility and high glacial silt, and the extra energy emitted is detected by salmon even in full daylight. 4 inch total length. One of our heaviest offerings. Tied on 2x-strong Daiichi 2220 streamer hook. Size: 2 only. Colors: Purple/Glo Pink, Black/Glo Orange, Black/Glo Green, Chartreuse/Glo Green, Fuchsia/Glo Pink, White/Glo Pink.

Dolly Llama - Sizes 2 & 1/0

Dolly Llama - Sizes 2 & 1/0

One of the hottest fly patterns in Alaska today for Rainbow, Steelhead, King, Chum, and Silver/Coho salmon. Extra heavy Alaska cone head, strong, sharp hook. The swirling, articulated action of the Dolly Llama elicits powerful strikes from salmon and trout. We use size 2 and size 1/0 Daiichi 2557 Intruder hooks because that's what you'll need for Alaska's big rainbow and salmon. The size 2 hooks have a 3/8-inch gape so they are legal on all fly-fishing-only waters. Articulation comes from the "string". We use 50 lb. SpiderWire for its strength and abrasion resistance. The sacrificial front hook is hand ground to eliminate sharp edges. No one matches our quality and they won't tell you what hook they use either. Olive/White and Black/White imitate the Arctic lamprey eel, a giant rainbow favorite snack that invades coastal Alaskan rivers such as the Naknek, Alagnak, Kvichak, Nushagak, and Kenai. Generally, salmon love the bright colors and flash, but often, later in the day, only dark patterns like the black/white will elicit strikes. This is especially true of silver (coho) salmon. Use chartreuse near the salt, on the Kenai, and in gin clear rivers. Pink and Fuchsia are favorites of King, Chum, and Silvers. As for kings, the old saying is: "dark fly for a dark day, bright fly for a bright day". We suggest black/blue, black/purple, or purple/black for the dark fly and chartreuse/blue and pink/orange for the light fly. Silvers on the Kenai have been going for chartreuse/white and Tutti Frutti. Our size 2/0 Magnum Dolly Llama can be found on the King's Corner page. Size: 2, 1/0. Colors: Black/Blue, Fuchsia/White, Little Rainbow Trout, Pink/Orange, Purple/Black, Black/White, Chartreuse/Fl. Blue, Chartreuse/White, Olive/White, Pink/Chartreuse (aka Tutti Frutti), Pink/Purple, Pink/White, Salmon Flesh, Black/Purple (not shown).

Salmon Twitching Jig, Marabou (NEW)

Salmon Twitching Jig, Marabou (NEW)

From Puget Sound to the rivers of Alaska, twitching jigs are by far the hottest technique used by non-fly fishermen for big salmon. Twitching a jumbo (3/8 ounce) jig can trigger aggressive responses from salmon, especially silver/coho. This technique is deadly in slower holding areas and tidewater. And with 3/8 oz., there's enough weight to get to the deepest holding pools on any river, even the Kenai. Just be careful swinging these. Last season, these 3/8 oz. jigs were the top "fly" pattern on the Kenai and surrounding waters. And we have the best price on planet Earth. Order early, as these go fast. Demand outstripped supply last season. Size: 1/0 hook, 3/8 ounce. Colors: Hot Pink/White, Chartreuse/White, Tutti Frutti (Pink/Chartreuse)
