IQ Dawn series

The purpose of the IQ Dawn Series is to cover most variations you can encounter at a salmon river. And hopefully catch a Salmon Salar, king of fish! All flies can easily be made to spey flies - just change the hackle to heron feather instead, in the same color.

Frank,

I don't remember featuring any other featherwing from Ismo than the Zeb Macahan, which is found here.

Martin

I have read global flyfisher for quite sometime. I seem to remember an earlier Ismo dawn article that was a featherwing. Would it be possible to bring it back? I'm sure that newer visitors to global flyfisher would love to see it.
my compliments to Ismo for all is beautiful patterns.
