Alaska Flies, Alaskabou Series
These proven favorites are tied to exacting specifications for George Cook (pictured at left with a very good Alaska King salmon).  This beautiful fish, fresh from the sea, was caught at Alaska West Lodge on the Kanektok River where many fish like this are taken each year. George has fished extensively across the length and breadth of our largest State. He developed the Alaskabou Series in his younger days while guiding in Alaska.  Alaskabous were an instant success and have remained key patterns for all of the anadromous fish in the northern latitudes including Salmon, Steelhead & Char.   Alaskabous are also very popular in British Columbian and the Pacific North West for salmon & steelhead and have spawned numerous patterns tied along the same marabou spider theme including our own marabou Tube Fly Series.  The great thing about this style

of fly is that they may be carried, packed tightly in a zip-lock bag and stuffed in a shirt pocket or a wader pouch. The more they get crushed & munched, the more wiggle they have and the better they fish.

Alaskabou, Blue Moon
Black & blue with blue & pearl flash is a deadly combination any time, but especially effective on dark days or periods when the water is off collor.

Alaskabou, Volcano
This pattern has hot colors with lots of flash and movement.  It kind of looks like molten lava.  That's why George named it Volcano.  Reddish orange has always been a favored color for new bright anadromous fish.
