This fly is another variation of a fly shown last year, but it is closer to the original (author unknown). It hardly makes the grade when compared to the classic beauty of the other flies on display this week, but that is the way most of our Pacific Salmon flies come. They are a little gaudy, yet easy tie and quite effective; and with the variety of fish in the water now, could net you a King, Silver, or Chum. The barbell eyes will get it down low where the fish are and keep the hook point up. One problem with this fly is that the long bunny tail has a tendency to get wrapped around the hook. I will usually clip off some of the end if it is causing problems. Sometimes, the shorter tail will make it more effective by making it a little more sparse and getting it to ride a little higher in the water.
