Santa’s Little Helper is fashioned from a Christmas theme Atlantic salmon fly pattern I came up with several years past. Though it’s never caught a salmon that I know of I’m certainly sure it could. The gold brooch fly pin copy certainly will not hook a salmon. It surely will fetch some glances and admiring comments when displayed on hat or coat.
I just hope it fetches some Christmas Cheer. Merry Christmas to all!
For several years I’ve been tying old classic fly patterns on decorative hook pins for Christmas. Here are a few of my favorites. The hat pin hooks are not easy to tie on. There is a lot that you have to work around. Number one is avoid the sharp point of the pin. Ouch, but the results are sure worth it. The finished pins do look great worn on clothing lapel or hat brim.
