The salmon fly Salars Nemesis is unique in that it is a soft hackle fly designed to catch Atlantic salmon. I don't know of any other salmon fly that is a soft hackle fly. When I was first shown this fly by the late Bill Shuck I became totally obsessed with it. It's a simple fly compared to most salmon flies and the materials are common and not expensive with exception of the jungle cock. Over the years I have tied many many Salars Nemesis flies and have fished them heavily. They have produced countless trout and bass and sunfish.
