Default Sunrise Special

I like orange for most salmon applications and at the crack of dawn which sometimes is at 2:30 AM here I like orange the best. This fly is a dual purpose type. In low light conditions like turbid water and rainy days It makes a fine searching pattern for steelhead / trout also.
