DFix Thanks for the recipe, otherwise the pink and subtleties would have gone unnoticed. Great tie!

Here are the "unique" parts of the recipe (as opposed to the elements that are in all the flatwings):

Wing: Two white saddles, pearl Mirage Flashabou, one "honey" saddle, one shrimp pink saddle, pink Mirage FB, an golden olive-over-bleached-grizzly saddle, gold Mirage FB, and two medium olive-dyed-grizzly saddles
Overwing: A dark olive-dyed-grizzly saddle.
Topping: A dark olive-dyed-grizzly hen feather with wide bars.
Throat: Olive bucktail, fairly sparse
Cheeks: Golden pheasant back
Eyes: JC

There is not actually very much bucktail on the throat/belly, but I think the cheek brings out the darkness. I was going for the impresion of a Rainbow's bright olive head. The pink got totally lost in the scan, but overall I think the effect came out fairly accurately. It looked pretty good coming back at me in the irrigation ditch running by the house! =)

DFix Great pattern!

Tom, how much belly hair in that tie? - looks wicked dense, maybe due to white background.

VERY NICE TIE! What's the wing material, just so I get it right?

That's a beautiful pattern that will definitely find its way into my fly box for our big lake-run browns!

Thanks for sharing this one with us.

Borrowing from the Striper/SW Patterns

A Rainbow Trout Flatwing? It is supposed to be somewhat "thick" like a small planter 'bow, so maybe it loses its effect somewhat. I'm thinking it might catch some big browns up the road.
