The Pink Ping Pong Fly Recipe – A Pink Salmon’s Favourite Edible Toy!

Hello friends! I just finished tying up a box of Pink Salmon flies for the upcoming season. One of my all time favourites for local beach fishing has always been the Pink Ping Pong. This fly gained it’s name for the fact that Pink Salmon love to smash it around in shallow saltwater.

Fish this fly with a RIO Premier Aqualux fly line (clear intermediate sinking line) and a 6′  8lb. Rio Salmon Steelhead Tapered leader.
