    3/64" x 1/2" stainless cotter pin

    white fishair
    pearl flashabou
    pearl krystalflash


    Mount pin in vise. tie in thread, then tie in fireline to form loop to rear of pin. Mount eyes 3/16" behind eye of pin. tie in 2" of fishair behind eyes. top wih 10-15 strands of krystalflash. tie in 10-15 strands flashabou in front of eyes, top with fishair. whip finish and cement.

    g smolt, nice looking fly. I am heading to Loreto in July and think I will tie some a little larger and give them a try as white on white is a good combination there. I am looking forward to giving it a try in Puget Sound as well.
    I greatly appreciate your willingness to share this pattern.

    I used something like the YachtClub when I went fishing for Coho in Canada, it was a blast!
