Black and Orange Wet Fly – Fly Tying Fly Recipe
Fish this fly in medium running clear streams. Strip the line to make it attractive. I find this fly good for pan fish as well.
The best hooks for this fly are:
Mustad # 3399
Sizes: 10 – 20
Thread: Black 6/0.
Tail: Black Hackle – want a slightly different look tie on Golden pheasant tippets instead.
Rib: Black Floss
Body: Orange Floss
Wing: Black – crow quill for the wing. This works well since I am not a crow fan and will shoot them. Never let anything go to waste!!
