The "Butt" Fly


Legend has it that a Atlantic salmon fisherman was perched above a big pool and watched a fish rise, and inhale (pun intended) a cigarette as a sort "dry fly". I'm sure it was tasty... Apparently this got the old codger's brain a spinning, and poof the "butt" fly was born.  I have no idea if this story is true, but I do know the people at Westwater Products manufacture and sell a ton of these tightly spun deerhair flies. What do you think?  True story, urban myth, or just a great marketing idea?

I've gotten hits from sunnies on a cigarette. It could happen.

Indeed; the post-industrial pattern potential is limitless. Personally, I am working on a Miller High Life can imitation for voracious muskies.

In addition to the "butt" fly, the green roach emerger is a popular offering from Northern California to AK.
