Red & Gold

Body: Gudebrod Metallic Braid
Rib: UNI French Gold
Wing: Red Bucktail with GP topping
Throat: Red Bucktail with GP topping
Eye: JC

The base pattern I picked up from Ken Sawada’s The Tube Fly book: Gold Aquamarine, but I did it with red instead of orange bucktail, and I did mine a bit more spare than the original pattern. The slim profile and red&gold colors on this is what makes it stand out: will try this out on seatrout as well.

A blue version of the cascade salmon pattern that should work fine for seatrout around here as well. This version is very heavily dressed compared to earlier cascade I have done, but this was with purpose to have big movement in the water.

I got 50 Partridge Patriot yesterday and had to test it out by tying up some cascade. I haven’t tied on this hook before or fished this pattern, but the hook looks and feels solid and the pattern should be good for both salmon and seatrout.
