    I'm going to paint a summer king salmon repro this week. I've got tons of reference photos of king salmon bodies, but I don't have anything that shows the details of the interior of the mouth. I've unhooked thousands of kings since the 1960s, but now that I need to really detail the inside of ones mouth, I can't remember all the intricacies. :)

    Black gums I highlight the upper mouth interior with sienna then spray the black blending

    Here's a couple of summer kings from Lake Ontario. Sorry about the hooks and flies in the pics but I Pro Staff for a fly company and we were testing a new tandem hook setup.
    Good luck on your king!

    Thanks for the help.

    Paul C. that looks like an interesting fly. A treble hook and a single hook together. All of my flies have a single treble hook. My squids have tandem single hooks.

    No straight down the mouth photos, but I do have a close up from the side of an early run king, as well as a bunch of other shots of this particular fish (Nushagak River, SW Alaska). I had to size it down to post here. If you want a bigger copy let me know and I'll email you one that's full sized.

    Have fun with that king; post it when you get it done. ;D

    Trophy Specialist....PM me your address and I will send you my hottest Lake O fly and tandem hook rig. Once you use a single and treble together on a fly you will never go back. They are absolutely devastating. Not real good for catch and release though...they can be tough to remove.
