Superb again Ray !

I'll try and match it (or get as close as I can) for summer trout in Ontario....in yellow too I think.

What's the tag ? Gold wire ? It looks so neat.

 

Cheers......Fred

Thanks for the kind words, guys. Really appreciated.

 

Fred - There is no tag on this fly. What you are looking at it the first wrap of the UTC Vinyl Rib over the bare hook shank. The light is reflected back thru the material, after striking the hook shank itself. The rest of the body is wrapped over the top of the orange underbody, giving the orange look of the abdomen. If you change the color of the underbody, you change the overall color of the fly.

 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Years to you guys.
