    Skater #3



    Hook: Partridge Wilson Dry Fly Salmon Single #2
    Thread: Black 6/0
    Body: Thin strip of caribou hair, still attached to hide, wound forward
    Wing: Elk mane


    I just tried this reindeer/caribou strips as the body for a skater. It's certainly much faster than spinning hair for the body, but the strips produce a much less dense body. I guess if you want a skater that really sits down into the surface film, this would be a way to accomplish that.
