Salmon Fishing Flies for Argentina/Chile
The General Practioner (GP) is a classic fly pattern that can be used very effectively
with Atlantic Salmon. It is generally used in high-water conditions, but this
fly is always worth trying
in low water conditions. Fish with smaller flies (size 10 or smaller). A red/orange
pattern is especially attractive to Atlantic Salmon.
This salmon fly is usually fished deep with a sinking
line, but is catching well when fished with a floating line. Due to the body hackle,
the General Practioner in bigger sizes on a floating line will work best in slow
moving water. This fly tends to get the fish to the surface in heavy currents.
Very effective in high-water conditions and most efficient when fished slowly.
Always carry 3 to 4 different sizes of this pattern in your fly box.
