  11. tie the fly with only the red or orange thread
  12. try glo brite threads or uni stretch for the hot spot or entirely white thread and color with a marker if you used a dark color thread for most of the fly and then tie on a red thread for the collar, it will darken because of the dark thread underneath red is a shitty color anyway. i muse red on some salmon and steelhead flies and it always darkens when wet
