52 weeks: 15 – Green 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…


Tube: Orange tag Orange Temple Dog
Body: Uni-floss green, Uni-French, Genetic Cock Saddle Green Highlander
Wing: Temple Dog: Orange, Yellow & Lime, peacock
Hackle: Spirit River Schlappen Black hackle

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
