The Silver Hilton is a classic Atlantic salmon fly that originated in eastern Canada in the early 1900s. Angler Edward Hilton created this unique pattern to represent the silver flash of salmon in the water.

This fly features a silver tinsel body, blue hackle, and long white wings. The silver tinsel body provides flashy coloration to grab the salmon's attention. The blue hackle imitates the dorsal fin of the fish. The white wings represent the splash and wake of a salmon breaking the surface.

The Silver Hilton works well for Atlantic salmon, steelhead, and sea-run brown trout. It is extremely effective during periods of high, dirty water when bright flies are needed to catch the fish's eye. Cast across-stream and swing it through holding lies and riffles. The Hilton moves through the water with an enticing action.

Tie this attractor pattern on salmon hooks sized 6-10. Fish it on a floating or sink tip line. The Silver Hilton has been catching fish consistently for over a century and continues to be a go-to fly for anglers around the world. Its unique profile and coloration make it a must-have fly for every salmon angler.
