Since we first introduced these in our 1990 catalogue, W. W. Doak "Deadly Dozen" fly selections have become a very popular item. They are essentially a "Top Twelve" compilation of patterns based upon the most requested flies from various salmon fishing regions. Although lots of variations can be found among the local favourites on any river, these assortments feature historically proven patterns for specific destinations. Each "Deadly Dozen" is supplied in a small W. W. Doak "Nubby Tack" fly box, with each fly named for easy identification. They are also available in a clear plastic box at a lower cost.
We are often asked to list the contents of our "Deadly Dozens" but we decline to do so. Since these selections represent a cross section of current ordering trends, the content of each assortment may change from time to time as pattern demand changes. Because this information is harvested solely from our personal experiences it is highly subjective. As such, it is not intended to be used as a reference for people planning to personally tie or otherwise acquire their flies for a particular destination.
All flies are tied on single hooks but can be done on doubles for an additional cost of $12.00.
