How To Tie The Choker Fly: Fly Tying Tutorial Video

The Choker Fly

The choker is tied normally on a 3XL or 4XL straight or down eye streamer hook. I went with the jig and heavy tungsten bead to keep the fly down in fast currents. This protein-packed morsel represents a chuck of salmon flesh clumped with some eggs floating downriver in the current. This is an easy meal for big trout. Look for spots on the river where the salmon pile up and fish downriver. 0x or 1x tippet is highly recommended. Dead drift this fly under an indicator. When fishing this jig style make sure it is the last fly in your rig.
