After seeing some of the spawnflyfish material flies being posted, I checked out their site. I didn’t place a big order but did grab some of their Salish sea dubbing mix and a couple of squid heads. I love fishing squid flies, one of my favorites. The heads are big though. These flies may not see action until next fall. Or, maybe I’ll find the nearest pier to me with some lights this winter and start throwing them around at night just to see what might bite!

Also tied up some smaller stuff using the dubbing that should work just fine for SRC this winter.
