1-inch long straight-cut red bunny fur. Tie middle
of strip at the bend of the hook, but don't trim off the
leftover. The remainder will be brought over the top after the
body is wrapped. |
Chartreuse polar chenille wrapped forward and stroked rearward.
Bring the remainder of the bunny strip over the top of this and
tie off behind the eyes. |
|Collar ||Webby Chartreuse hackle |
This fly can be found in
Pacific Salmon II, by Les Johnson and Bruce Ferguson. It is mentioned there as a
fly for Coho, thought the version shown is purple. This and other chartreuse
mixes have brought me some
success for Chum Salmon.
