flytire's Butcher Nymph from yesterday had me thinking of one of my favorite classic wets, the Grizzly King, so I had to tie up a nymph version of it also:

Hook: Saber #12  streamer, 2xl

Thread: Black, 70D

Tail: Grizzly hen fibers, red marker

Rib: Small silver holo

Body: Green floss

Nice fly!

Sawada’s Rio Grande King (variation)

Original called for matching duck quill segments (ugh!).  Rummaging thru my stuff I found bags of turkey flats that I used to use for parachute wings before I found Congo Hair. Stripped off a section, folded it like bronze mallard and tied it it; not a bad effect and a lot easier for me than messing with quills.


hook - Dai Riki 075 #10
thread - Danville 6/0 black 
tag - tinsel gold 
tail - golden pheasant tippet
body - dubbing black 
hackle - furnace 
wing - turkey flat white

Regards,
Scott

Nice, very similar to Fran Better's Usual.  Not much info @ that fly online, other than Davie McPhail's video

Crappy background, can't even see the fly.  Lovely hook, though.
