Dolly Llama - Sizes 2 & 1/0 (AKA Dali Llama)

Dolly Llama - Sizes 2 & 1/0 (AKA Dali Llama)


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 and Gamakatsu 02411 Octopus 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. 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. Here's an idea: slip a size 6mm or 8mm bead egg on the leader and turn any Dolly Llama into an "Egg Sucker" instantly! Our size 2/0 Magnum Dolly Llama can be found on the King's Corner page.
