Hook: Alec J. nickel finish
Body: white rabbit/pearl blue litebrite mix
Hackle: White marabou (tip first) stripped one side
Rib: silver wire - protecting the marabou stem
Collar: grayish phesant rump
Under wing: silver crystal flash
Wing: 2 highlander green hackle tips & 2 grizzly tips (outside)
Cheeks: jungle cock

This is an amazing fly in stained or muddy water.
The grizzly is highly visable and the white portions become translucent (?) with a green glow from within.

Kinda' like the ladder back J-Plugs you see the "sportsmen" swinging in the Salmon River in the fall.. :hihi:

Charlie,

Maybe Saturday - Unless I have plans allready made for me (read wife & kids)
I'll call the shop if I can't make it.

I thought I'd put up the other Grizzly wing fly I photo'd.
It's my purple and white explosion.
Nick should like it - it's purple and white.

See ya,
Steve

Question: What's the maximum file size for attachments? ... 60?

Steve,
Thats a nice looking fly. I've always been a fan of the Silver Hilton and this a nice variation.
