I have fished with red tag many times after trout & grayling, so I don’t see why a scaled up tube-version shouldn’t work on salmon! Trying to keep it as simple as I can, I was tempted to add a red collar, but resisted and added two pieces of flash instead to match the silver wrapping in the body.

After experimenting with Sunray shadows all weekend I ended up freestyling this tube with the material I have available. I really like how this turned out: the orange/green/yellow combination should be a real treat in the water , the only thing I would like to see in addition would be a disc/conehead and maybe a Jungle Cock side
