Green Highlander with a twist

dryfly.me.2015.10.25.green

Here is a GH I did this morning (on a Mustad 80500BL #2/0: http://flyhooks.org/mustad/80500bl ), but with a twist: I used polar bear in the wing instead of the normal married wings. I did some small GH earlier this year with PB, but not following the pattern as strict. I wanted to have a fly that would be easy to tie, didn’t take too much time, and at the same time gave me that composition of colours and flare that a fully dressed GH have. Going to tie up some more of this in different sizes (from #1 to #5/0)

52 weeks: 15 – Green

dryfly.me.2014-15.greenTube: Green
Thread: UNI 6/0 Grey
Tag: UNI-French Silver
Body: UNI-Floss Highland Green, Lagartun French Silk Floss
Rib: UNI-French Oval Med. Silver, UTC French Tinsel Med Gold
Dubbing: Seal Highlander Green (in front of the wing)
Wing: 3 colors of green templedog, Silver & Green Krystal Flash, Peacock
Sides: JC
Cone: FutureFly

A fun one to create: just get all the green I have and put it together on a fly. The optimal would be to have a green JC for the sides as well, but you can only have so many necks…
