About the Willie Gunn Salmon Atlantic Fly
This pattern with its rousing wing has the X factor.
If I had to choose one fly to get me through springtime it would be a Willie Gunn
Ken Sawada has borrowed much from the traditional forging process developed in Japan for swordsmithing; to create his double Salmon hooks. They are the strongest and sharpest double hook on the market! Ideal for Salmon Fly Fishers aiming for the monsters of Kola Peninsula, Norway or Alaska. Or, indeed, any water where you don't want to lose that fish of a lifetime!

Comments from other fly fishermen
A lightly dressed W.G. is a must for Scottish salmon fishers, not just for spring time it will work the miracle when all other tried and tested flies fail, a second Last Chance! I added a length of gold sparkler along with the yellow, gives just a bit more eye catching flash in the low springtime light. - Posted by Nic Evans on 09/08/2009
