The Munro Killer is an excellent fly to have in your box, it combines four of
the favourite colours for taking salmon. These are as follows, Black which is in
the body and the wing, Yellow or Gold again in the body and wing, Orange in the
beard and Blue also in the beard.
Out of these four
colours at least one colour will appear in most of the Salmon fly patterns
around the world. You will also find at least one of these colours on spinning
lures such as minnow's, spoons and plugs.
A few turns of gold oval tinsel
Tail: (optional)Two orange hackle feather tips
Body: Black floss
Ribbing: Gold oval tinsel
Beard hackle: Orange
hackle fibres with blue guinea fowl tied over
hair with black hair on top
Or yellow dyed squirrel tail with black bars in it
First tie in the oval gold for
the tag, six turns or so on a big hook and about three on a very small
hook. Then tie in the optional tail of orange feather tips, feather
fibres or hair can also be used. Next tie in the ribbing and the black
floss forming a nice even body with the floss followed by nice even
turns of the rib.
Turn the hook upside down in the vice and tie in the orange false beard,
or if preferred wind on a couple turns of orange hackle and draw back.
Follow this with the blue guinea fowl fibres, false beard style, then
turn the hook right way up again. Now tie in the yellow hair, buck tail
or squirrel tail are good choices, for the under wing then the black
hair over the top with equal amounts for each colour. Form a neat head
and whip finish varnish with black or clear. The original, I believe,
had no tail and had yellow tied in with black on top for the wing.
