Here is an appropriate fly for the season. There are several versions of a fly out there called "Christmas Tree". For another version, see this Christmas Tree. This pattern here, though, is a variation of a Canadian fly (originator unknown) that calls for a Flat Silver Tinsel body with a V-Rib and a Silver and Green Flashabou wing.
