NOTES: Relatively new way of tying flies. It belongs to family of "halfinchers" developed in Sweden. These type of flies are very popular in Scandinavia and Russia now. As I said, the hook placed closer to the head of fly reduces the possibility of badly damaging the fish with adeep take. Such flies with a short body and a long wing have very nice and attractive silhouette in water. Worked best on moderate current with the fly presentation right under surface. This fly, together with the Pink Toy was an absolute favourite to bring Silver salmon females to the bank of river.
