    Default Some help needed.

    Hey there

    Might be off to north island later in the year and planning on chasing some Kingies on fly while i'm there (plus anything else that may cross my path). Was looking at some other fly patterns to tie. Now have heard of a Black Queen and a Salmac, but cannot find any images or tying references for these patterns.

    Can anyone help me with information regarding these two patterns? Cheers!

    Thanks, hadn't thought of that!

    All it gives are bee links and 'Are you looking at salmon flies'. Sent me to Widfly site, but no images. Drat!

    Mate, for what it's worth, the kingies are not too fussy!

    Tie up a bunch of flowing type deceivers and some top water flies like the Creases and you're good to go.
    Give the deceivers a bit of weight in some patterns and you've covered most bases.

    I've taken my fair share of kingies on fly and if they are there, they generally eat.
    Where abouts are you fishing in north island?
