Save our Skin

Save Our Skin (SOS)
Printable Version

Spencer Higa, came up with a great little multipurpose nymph pattern a few years ago. Spencer is the head guide and fishing manager at Falcon's Ledge out in the Uinta Basin, so needless to say, he sees a lot of picky fish on a daily basis. The S.O.S. (Save Our Skin) fly was originated to act as an imitation for a variety of mayflies as well as midges.
