This is one of those time-tested classics, if it is small ones for trout or larger ones for salmon/seatrout: the red-tag exists in different variations and material-choice. This one is tied on the Ken Sawada hook that I’ve tied up quite a few ones on lately: it is strong, has a good build and is razor-sharp. I tapered up the body with white floss first to get a gradually larger body, when you then apply the hackle it will sit in front of the taper and help with the pulsating movement of the fly.
