This is a popular fly!  In the last few weeks, I have been asked to tie this in different color patterns.  First I tied in a baby brown trout coloration, and then someone asked me to tie it in a rainbow trout color.  Now, someone recently asked me to tie this in a perch color.  So here it is!   This subscriber of mine said he fishes a lake called Navajo Lake, and I have fished it a few times before.  There are no baitfish other than perch and bluegill in that lake.  So it makes sense that he would want this coloration of a fly.  Its a good little fly, and very effective!  Check out the underwater movement!  And this has been a very effective fly in many of the colorations I have tied it in.  So I have no doubt it will work wonders in this color pattern as well.

As always, here is a list of the materials I used on this fly.  You are welcome to try other materials, and you do not have to stick to these, however I am listing them to help you know what I specifically used. 
Hook:  Gamakatsu B10S in size 2
Thread:  Veevus Power Thread 140 in hot orange
Weight:  Large red painted lead dumbbell eyes
Body:  Ice Dub in pearl and orange
Tail:  Barred yellow magnum rabbit strip
Head:  Senyo's laser dub in white and olive
Head Cement:  Solarez Bone Dry UV Resin
