Spotted Bombers are spun hair dry flies with decorative body patterns added in during the spinning process. The possible combinations of body hair colours, hackle colours and body patterns in this fly series are endless so no attempt is made to name the few flies used in this illustration. Incidentally, bombers are my personal dry fly preference for Atlantic salmon.

The Exploits River (photo background) is the largest river in Newfoundlandand. The town of Grand Falls Windsor which is situated on the river, hosts our annual salmon festival. The Exploits offers a great Atlantic salmon fishing experience on a river that was once the home of our now extinct Beothuck Indians.
