Shock & Awe - Herring

Solitude Fly Co.


The Herring Shock & Awe is a really cool baitfish pattern tied on a tube, developed by a local fly shop owner, Anil Srivastava. It is a very popular small baitfish pattern fished on our local beaches for salmon and sea-run cutthroat trout and has a darting action when stripped through the water. Size of the fly is approximately 2 3/4 inches in length. We recommend a Daiichi 2546 hook (heavy wire) in size 8 or a Gamakatsu SC-15 hook (light wire) in size 4 for these flies.
