Here's another Glimmer pattern, this time designed to imitate juvie sunfish.

Hook: Size 2
Thread: 3/0, red
Tail: Olive over light blue bucktail
Tail flash: Pearl flashabou
Body: Olive ice chenille
Wing: Olive over light blue bucktail
Throat: Orange over light blue bucktail
Eyes: Red mirage eyes
Head: Epoxy, Softex, or equivalent

This pattern has the addition of throat bucktail to simulate the fuller profile of sunfish.

I haven't tested this one out yet, but that'll change soon enough. ;)

Another fly of the same pattern...this one has blue ice chenille for the body and more orange in the throat.

I'm leaning more towards the olive body. It seems a bit more suggestive and natural.
