    Had lots of luck with this in saltwater (tied here on salmon iron). Always liked the looks of this one, although it doesn't get much attention; change colors to suit your needs.

    hook - Mustad 36890 #6
    thread - Danville 6/0 black
    tail - Flashabou silver
    body - Diamond Braid silver
    hackle - white
    wing - Krystal Flash pearl, calftail, Krystal Flash peacock
    topping - peacock herl


    mash barb, start thread (if you want it to go deep, add some non-tox wraps)

    [​IMG]



    tie in a clump of Flashabou (10 strands here), double over and wrap back to point above mid-barb

    [​IMG]



    tie in braid, wrap to tail and back; tie off and trim

    tie in (folded) hackle, sweep fibers back while wrapping forward; tie off, then stroke hackle back and down while wrapping thread back for wing tie-in

    tie in a few strands of pearl KF

    tie in calftail wing (you can sub bucktail, arctic fox, insert favorite synthetic)

    [​IMG]



    tie in a few strands of peacock KF and peacock herl

    [​IMG]


    whip finish, SHHAN, trim tail (shank x 2), trim KF and you're done

    Firetiger (wish I had thought of tying up some of these for peacock bass)

  2. Excellent SBS Scott, I have looked at all the Salmon/SH flies you and many others tie of this genre and I was intrigued. I followed your SBS and had a blast, and the fly looks passable. I see things I need to tweak and learn but it is a great start. Thanks again for this one!
     
  3. That fly would get plenty of SRC action on the beaches I fish. No doubt.
     
  4. In light of the recent sand lance thread, I think this with a chartreuse bucktail/synthetic wing might work really well! I'm going to have to give it a try.
