Foam Yellow Sally no hackle
Hook: Std dry fly #12 to #16
Thread: yellow 6/0
Body: 2mm yellow foam trimmed about match stick wide
wing: yellow dyed deer body hair
Trim 1mm yellow foam to about the width of a match stick, tye in above the bend reverse so the "match stick is pointing off the back of the hook. Pull forward and stretching it slightly. Tye in slightly further back so the wing can be tied to thread wrap not foam. Tye in wing and trim head finish with SHAN
Its a great pattern for Brookies and wild rainbows at higher elevation, being hackless it keeps the hook in the water so the aggressive strikes don't knock the fly in the air. It also can be floated thru riffles
Re: Foam Yellow Sally no hackle
Wow, that is a very nice looking fly, with that foam body I can see how it would float through the riffles.
