Tag: Lagartun French Tinsel
Tail: Golden Pheasant
Body: Red/Black UNI Floss, Lagartun French Tinsel
Wing: Yellow & Red Templedog, Yellow Flash, Black Templedog, Silver Flash

As I’ve noted before: I try to tie up a pattern in different colors, or, as in this case: different types to see how they come together. Today it was a repetition of the comet from the other day. I really like this pattern and the double will see some smaller variants down to #12 for trout.

Body: Black Floss, Lagartun Varnished French Tinsel
Wing: Silver Fox

I started out with a single red-tag to try out some new silver fox I got the other day, but I ended up with six different UNI-Floss colors. This is a very simple tube, but the red-tag can be extremely efficient when it comes to trout (and salmon). The wing was made very slim to create a long and slim profile in the water.

Small tubes on treble hooks have tied a lot of big hair-winged tube the last two months, but salmon (or trout for that matter) isn’t always interested in the big juicy flies! So today was a tie-up-small-tubes-for-treble-hook day and I got some in different color variations to see how they come together. All flies are done with Arctic Fox and/or temple dog.
