Fly Help - Yellow/Green Slime

Recommended Posts

Was out fishing tonight for Atlantic Salmon. I was using some normal fall patterns, but was told about a Yellow Slime and have also heard of a Green Slime. I cannot find these flies anywhere so I can see what I need to tie. I'm kicking myself now as I could have just asked to see one closer. Looked like a hairwing but i didn't get a look at the body.

Has anyone heard of a Yellow Slime and/or have any pics? I looked on the pattern database but can't seem to find anything.

the description of the under wing is confusing think rusty rat

Hi Nick

Here is a picture of the Slime

 

And if you want a reference get hold of Mike Crosbys book "River Talk" In there is also the pattern description.
