About the Willie Gunn Salmon Atlantic Fly

The Willie Gunn is a highly regarded and well-known salmon fishing pattern that has been a staple in the fly boxes of anglers for many years. This classic pattern is dressed on a double hook and features a distinctive and eye-catching wing that provides a lifelike imitation of an emerging insect or a fleeing baitfish.

The Willie Gunn is especially effective during the spring salmon runs, when the fish are actively feeding and the water conditions are ideal for fly fishing. This pattern is best fished in clear water and is often used as a search pattern to find active fish.

The Willie Gunn's rousing wing and effective design make it a top choice for anglers fishing for Atlantic salmon in rivers and streams. Whether you're a seasoned angler or just starting out, the Willie Gunn is a must-have pattern in your fly fishing arsenal.
