Cone head Blue Moon

George Cook's Cone Head Bluemoon (Alaskabou) Steelhead and salmon fly. June Fly Draw -

George suggests that the ConeHead Bluemoon is a good fly for fishing British Columbia's Kispiox and Dean rivers during the winter runs in a size #2/0 hook down to a size #1. The fly is a part of Cook's iconic Alaskabou series of streamers and the palmered marabou allows the fly to maintain some shape when it is pulled through the water.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
