The General Practitioner
(Shumakov Tube)
General Practitioner
The General Practitioner is arguably one of the most productive salmon
and steelhead patterns of all time. In the original colour (orange) the
chartreuse, black, purple, pink, and red versions have also caught their
fair share of fish. This version of the GP is quite different than the
original. Instead of course bucktail or calf tail, Icelandic Sheep hair is
used to give the fly a softer flow in the water. The sheep hair also gives
off a glow when in extreme light.
