  19. hi ray a lot of color and a lot of movement on this fly i would use it with the thoughts if it doesnt scare them away they will grab it i have not seen many atlantic salmon flies with this colour scheme ( even though you are probably using it for steelhead) all the best john

  21. Excellent tying Jamie There is a nice translucence in the yellow mohair Just one thing you could help me out with? I am not too familiar with mohair but i am just thinking will slim down maybe too much in the stream? these type of flies were designed to produce a big profile in the water ?? Maybe Jens can answer this keep it up all the best john
