Perch Flies for Salmon

I tied up some flies a few months back that were meant to be my wife's uncle's Christmas gifts. He lives near Plattsburg, New York and does a lot of trolling for Lake Trout and Salmon on Lake Champlain. He shares a lot of the the same theories on fishing that I do, believing you can adapt proven saltwater tactics to freshwater and vice versa. Lately he has taken to troll large saltwater flies, streamer fishing at 60 to 100 feet deep. I tied a few perch colored flies for him, they both have bodies that include glow in the dark tinsel.
This one had a little more red in the body, like it matters at 100 feet deep
This guy has an orange belly with the glow tinsel wrapped around it
I plan on tying a few more Flashabou and Marabou streamers for him to troll as well, hopefully they find their ways into some fishes mouths. 

Thanks for reading,
