    I thought I'd share the fly I got 2 silvers on this weekend. I don't do near as much fly fishing as most people that love tying flies as much as me but this pattern has served me well when I do break out the whip. I named it Soldotna years ago.
    Tail: pale pink marabou
    Body: Pink sparkle chenille
    Rib: Med. flat silver tinsel
    Hackle: red saddle hackle long and tyed down or tie as throat
    Wing: purple marabou
    Overwing: 10 strands of peral krystal flash
