Those of us that used this fly on Harmon Creek know why I plan to make a video on it this week.
Hook: TMC 200R, only because I have a bunch of these.
Thread: 180-240D, color to match top fiber colors of fly
Eyes: Lead dumbbell, 1/80 oz or smaller. Also you could use bead chain for the eyes in an effort to reduce weight.
- Colorado blade size 00
- Split rings, size 0
- Roller swivels, size 12 or 14, this is completely dependent on being able to get the swivel onto the hook. I like to go as small as I can.
Paint: Chartreuse fingernail polish, with black fingernail polish pupil
Bottom: SF fibers, off-white
Top: SF Fibers, rainbow
Here are some other variations of the theme.
