Sunray Shadow

Sunray Shadow tied on tube with goat. The white/brown is goat while the black overwing is templedog.

A very easy pattern to tie, but one that should be in every box!

Ted Trueblood tied a very similar fly called "integration" and the sunray shadow has a likewise venerable reputation. I myself tie and fish a fly tied black over white and have for many years had utmost confidence in it.

 

You are absolutely right......the SS or a fly like it belongs in everyone's fly box.

 

Good post !

Most UK guys use bucktail underwing to support a softer goat long over wing. Go you find any problems with hook tangling going this softer route?

Can get some problems every now and then, but the softness of the goat makes it really come alive, so it is worth it :)
