My Variation of a Springs Wiggler. The only difference is I used Antron instead of squirel tale, and put eyes on it. Tied one up this morning with Red Chenille.

First Soft Hackle. Any input on this fly?

Latex Wiggler, simply put. Get used to tying these, and you make a doz or so up in less than 30min.

Seen a fly like this somewhere, but can' remember. I guess the Coho go nuts over these, and Steelhead will take them as well(?).

Your spring wiggler reminds me more of a sparrow but a very good fly none the less.

You soft hackle is very nice. Kind of a Hi Vis version with the flashabou. Try to go a little lighter on the hackle though, you may have a little too much. I go heavy if using a lt dun since it is transparent but if you use something that isn't transparent it will cover the body of the fly when wet.

I've had good luck on some rivers with the latex wiggler and nothing on others but it's always a good fly to have. Our rivers are full of them.

I've seen the last fly before and taken a musky out of the Huron on a similar fly. It should be a good fly for salmon. Try some in chartruese also for both salmon and walleye. For some reason I've found that river walleyes love chartruese.
Tie in from the tips but just do two wraps or until it is sparse.
