This tube fly is tied using the Parakeet Pattern that I have had quite a bit of success for King, Silver, and Chum Salmon with in the non-tube fly variety (which see). Also see Parakeet, Orange and Black; Parakeet, Pink and White; Parakeet, Chartreuse and White, Parakeet, Chartreuse; and Parakeet, Purple for ideas about variations for this fly.
