As tied circa 1950; whenever you think west coast steelhead fly this name has to come to mind. I like my wing on top of the hackle.

Great tie, its very beautiful! I love the Skykomish Sunrise, one of my favorite flies to fish for the red salomon on the Kenai.

Hi Ard,

I use the Skykomish Sunrise a lot in Alaska. It was one of my favorite Trout flies. Nice tie. This fly is not nearly as popular as it was back in the 70's/80's. That is too bad as trout love them.

It is a shame that the photo doesn't show the colors of the fly. I know you are going for a special effect in the picture but it doesn't show the colors.

I'll post one with better color (I hope) shot against a black background.
Lighting is a problem for colors, I don't have a macro flash so all the photos are done using the lamp on my vise and it is incandescent.

Hi Ard,

Thanks for the photo that shows the colors. Most digital cameras allow to adjust for incandescent light.
