AJ I have to say you really impress me more and more each day. Nice pattern I am sure it will do well.

Looks like a 3 or 4x size 6. I can't remember if I listed the size in the SBS I posted for it...

I'm gonna tie some up for King Salmon next summer! Don't know if it will work on Kings, but it sure hooked me!
If my version doesn't work, I'm gonna rename it the "Nothing Special"!

Hahaha, nice! I need to tie some up and get back to swinging streamers, been doing a whole lot of nymphing lately.

That fly isn't ugly at all! I really like the Green/Olive version

I love the bugger variations; some I've tried:

Squirrel strip over the back
Squirrel strip/soft hackle collar
'fish skull' versions
soft hackle collar with UV dubbing for gills
dubbing body instead of chenille
teal feather cheeks/fins with light dub collar
eyes glued to the conehead

Of course, now I need to copy yours too... SO hard to decide which streamer to use!
I really like the olive version. Gold works great here in spring. I am always surprised by the gaudy colors that salmon will take (salmon noob here)...

I was gonna say 'red headed stepchild' for the orange one
