# 94840 hook. I think my green is too light, but you never know.
Phentex used to hsve a great Green coloured yarn, about the same colour as Highlander Green. I think they discontinued this colour, since I can't seem to find it. Warren Duncan used to tie " Green Machines" with this stuff. I'd love to get some if anyone has some and can spare a little.

Yup, I know quite a few guys who'd choose the Carter's bug over the orange bomber. In smaller sizes, they're great for trout too. Fish em' dry on a dead drift, in the film with some action or just down an across, either way, you're likely to find success. When tying a CB, it's important to remember that you're trying to imitate a shrimp - that'll help with getting the shape of the fly. Yellow heads for females, orange for males, although I think you'd be safe to use either in most situations.
