Sockeye Salmon Fly Patterns for the Alagnak River
These Sockeye Salmon Fly Patterns work all over Alaska for sockeye salmon. We fish these salmon while they are traveling fresh from the salt, dime bright, and prime for the table. Since sockeyes will not readily eat flies while traveling, they are lined in the mouth. This is the method in Alaska, for this species only, as they will not hit flies that often. Sockeyes will, however, hit flies while trying to spawn. During this time when they are fully colored up and decomposing from the outside in, we do not fish for them. These flies can be found at Alaska Fly Fishing Goods, as we have found they carry the best selection of Alaska fly patterns. Please note that Angler’s Alibi supplies all flies and tackle at no extra charge.
