About the The Ghillie Salmon Atlantic Fly

The Ghillie Salmon fly is a popular and versatile pattern that has earned a reputation as a must-have in any salmon angler's fly box. Created by Tony Black, it is tied to a Gold Salar Double hook with a striking combination of yellow, black, and red materials, including a flowing red tail and gold body.

One of the key features of The Ghillie is its versatility. It can be fished on a floating line, a sinking line, or even as part of a traditional Spey casting technique. This makes it an ideal pattern for use in a variety of fishing conditions, whether you're targeting salmon in a fast-flowing river or calmer waters.

The Ghillie is particularly effective in Scotland, where it is a popular fly among anglers in rivers and streams throughout the country, including on the Isle of Skye. Its vibrant colours and lifelike movement in the water make it a highly effective pattern that is sure to catch the attention of any passing salmon.
