Default a few more pics of the adult salmon fly pattern...

...sun came out today...here are a few more pics...I am looking forward to fishing this one big time...a friend recomended fishing it with a dropper behind of either an emerger or nymph on maybe 24" of tippet...... sort of like a "hopper dropper" rig...since this bug floats well...

I doubt a summertime steelhead or big trout would resist...we will see...hopefully fish pics will be forthcoming...

here are a few more views...sunshine can make for some better pics...overall detail isnt as good...but highlights are much better...plus shadows...

when Salmon flies lay their eggs...they are very vulnerable ...and predators know exactly what they are...a lot of protein...

this bug was pretty soaked at this point(over a half hour of casting and landing in the water)...but still floated well...I really dig those antennae...I didnt even know they were still on ( after thity plus casts and retrieves)its when I put my camera on the computer I saw this myself...

I blew off the water and took one more shot before the sun started to get lower in the sky ...

I have been working on this bug for a few weeks...after the sedge bug I tied a little bit ago...extra sticky wax on the wing feathers was the best thing I did to help this one actually work for fishing......I am looking forward to trying some pheasant tail legs...a friend had pity and tied up a tails worth for me...
