Salmon flies are seldom if ever made to imitate a real live insect. They are tied on single hooks from No. 3/0 to No. 8, and on double hooks from No. 2 to No. 8 in size. Most salmon fishermen prefer the single hooks. Only the finest hooks are used for salmon flies; also the best materials obtainable for bodies, wings, etc. The best flies cost from twenty-five cents to seventy-five cents each. The first-class flies cost from $1.00 to $1.50 per dozen; bass flies and the large size trout flies about $2.00 or $2.50 per dozen. Cheap ones made of dyed feathers, etc., may be bought at thirty-five to fifty cents per dozen.
