Default New Generation Flies For Alaskan Salmon & Trout;

I have turned over a new leaf so to say and will begin listing the new style flies I am tying and some of which have already proven to be great fish catchers.

I will first post the pictures and as time allows I'll edit in the tying materials lists for each pattern.

Here we go ...........

Skykomish Sunrise, 2 variations tied on Pro Tube Micro flex tubes.

Tying Materials:
The Tube:Pro Tube Micro black with 1/4" of clear shrink tubing welded on the rear for hook junction.
Rear hackle: Sunburst yellow & orange / red dyed schlappen folded and wound full
Body: Red chenille with a very old silver garland circa 1980; use what ever you have for some sparkle
Front hackles: Place a small dubbing or chenille ball on the tube then wind the 2 colors schlappen again
Wing: White hair; this is arctic fox but any white hair will work fine
Cone: I painted that but any cone will do, the cone is removeable
Species: All salmon & rainbow trout

Tying:
Very much the same but showing ribbing like most will have available and no cone.
