Ice Purple and Pink

 
tied by Whiskey Creek
Fly Type: Attractor Pattern,
Target Species: Steelhead,
Recommended Region: Northwest US,
Material List:
Tag & underbody: Silver flashabou
Body: UV Purple Ice Dubbing
Body (front half): Pink Ice Dubbing
Hackle: Mallard dyed pink


Tying Instructions: Tie in flash at half way point. Then build an underbody of flash. Don't know if this helps, but the intent is to make a reflective hook shank to help the body be more translucent.

I also posted an orange version. I think the front half of the fly suggests an egg pattern.
Presentation Tips: steelhead swing
