Rusty Rat

2015.02.08.dryfly.me.rusty_rat

Hook: TMC7999 #1/0
Thread: UNI 6/0 Red
Tag: UNI-French Medium
Body: first half Lagartun Silk Floss, second half peacock herl
Rib: UNI-French Medium
Wing: Squirrel Tail
Hackle: Whiting  Rooster Saddle Grizzly

The Rat series are classic salmon patterns that many variations and adaptations, this rusty rat I haven’t done before because I haven’t had the peacock sword, but with some in house I have to do a series of this as well. The whiting hackle is long and vibrant and will generate just the right movement in the water. A pattern that I should take down to some trout-size hooks as well, not just these big irons!
