 This Jock Scott-inspired Steelhead / Salmon fly was designed by renowned angler/author Erling Olsen of Frogner Norway and has proven itself to be one of the most effective flies ever fashioned for Salmon and Sea Trout.

The "semi-toned colors" and "transparent image" of the Jock Olsen will suit just about any stream color or condition and is ideal for big Salmon - especially when fished in deep pools.

While it was concieved for Scandinavian waters, it's a marvelous addition to your flybox for any salmon/steelhead rivers all over the world
