When salmon enter the river from their green-blue feeding grounds, their eyesight is still tuned for the colors of their ocean habitat. Perhaps for this reason green has the reputation of being the early season go-to color on many rivers. In addition to being an early season choice, Green butt is traditionally used throughout the season especially in clear and green-tinted rivers. Great fly anytime you think a small “black double” might trigger action into a fish that has declined a larger tube. This classic, “original” style version is tied on a Mustad DL71U double hook. If you prefer a livelier wing or Loop doubles, try out the Green Butt Fox Wing variant.
