    Default Char Fin; A Salmon Fly

    I had two of these flies and one got sort of torn up in the past two seasons so I figured to make another. For you wing aficionado's out there I would love to see one of these with a really good wing. I'm going to do one more and will stick it along with this on to see if they get better or worse. This is a sharp looking fly for salmon fishing and one not everyone will be carrying.

    The Fin

    Hook: This is a Daiichi 2051
    Tag: Flat silver foil
    Body: Black marabou silk on rear 2/3 palmered with short black hackle and ribbed with silver oval
    Body: Front is black spun fur, hackled with black marabou and ribbed with gold oval
    Collar: Long natural teal flank
    Beard / Throat: Three bunch's of hackle fibers, one black, one orange, one white
    Wing: Married sections of goose in orange, black, with a white top edge

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Gary & Larry,

    Thanks guys I was looking through some boxes today and saw that there needed to be a couple more of these. The best part about living here is that something will hit that like it's done something wrong
