A must have pattern for all salmon anglers. Based on customer feedback this variation was a hit fly for 2019!

Antti Guttorm started to do some light improvements on the famous Icelandic pattern Red Frances. Thinner hackle stalks give more life to the fly and the thick hackle stalks made the fish just bite the tail part of the fly many times, never hitting the hook. Many anglers actually cut them shorter after getting takes, but not hooking fish. Anti also added some Krystal Flash. 

Olive Frances is one of those flies you can fish however you like. You can catch salmon casting it upstream and free drifting it downstream, swinging it across the current or fishing it slowly downstream.
