Notes: The Magog Smelt is one of the most popular bucktails and was developed by Mr. Frier Gulline of Fin, Fur and Feather, Ltd. The fly was initially intended to be sunk into the waters of Memphremagog Lake to pursue the land locked salmon of the region. In addition to being a successful lure for the land locked salmon, the streamer found favor with smallmouth and striped bass anglers. Dwayne’s version strays from the familiar violet bucktail wing and substitutes in black and a couple other minor flourishes.

Dwayne MillerDwayne Miller – I was born and presently reside on Prince Edward Island, Canada. I’ve been chasing trout around PEI since the age of 5 and found out about flyrods at 12. I continued to fish both for a few more years but in 1988 that all changed as my good friend and mentor, Scott Mitchell turned me onto chasing Atlantic salmon with the flyrod. This was a life changing moment, and I’ve been on a mad whirl’wind ride chasing these magnificent fish ever since.
