My tube fly version of what will definitely become my favorite "brown" fly for salmon and seatrout in late summer and fall. A fairly easy tie.
Thread: UNI 8/0, orange or brown.
Tube: FutureFly orange outer tube, black inner tube.
Tag: Gold Mini FlatBraid.
Tail: Golden Pheasant crest.
Body: Peacock Ice Dub.
1. front hackle: Orange Ringneck Pheasant rumpfeather.
Wing: 2 strands each of gold and copper Gliss 'n' Glow under the wing. Cut out a small, 8-10mm long and 6-8mm wide piece of Shadow Fox, taper it ever so slightly and tie in. Add a few strands of the same flash to the sides of the wing. Top with two strands of bleached-and-dyed-yellow peace eye feather.
2nd fronthackle: Orange hen.
Head: Orange (or preferably copper) UFO disc from FutureFly.
The wing is maybe 5-6 cm long, so it's not a big fly.
I hope you enjoy it!
