Sometimes you end up just borrowing a little bit of everything from different patterns that you feel have been successful and it end up to look better than you imagined it from the start! This is a good example of that, I’ve used a little polar bony as a back bone, pearl flash, white bucktail, chartreuese soft Bird fur feathers, white and chartreuse Fin racoon hair and more! A big head with a lot of possibilities to push waters, really soft and moving bird fur feathers ties both inward and splayed out will add a lot of fluttering movment bot on retrieve and when stopped. The rac hair will add extra movement in the head with its vibrating abilities and of course the color combo of white and chartreuse is THE most successful spring color (and quite a good autumn color too)! The size is about 25 cm (10 inches) which is also kind of perfect when you look for unweighted flies with a lot of “self movement” so to speak, i.e. flies that when stopped will keep pulsating and flutter instead of being actively fished with jigging movememt. Bucktail as a support also have the effect where it can make the fly go out to the side when hard retrieved. Something that is extra special when you tie them articulated, which I feel I really need to do!
Oh well, as you guess I am rather please with how this one looks! 😀
