We haven't had any dee flies posted for a while, so I thought I'd post one of the more unusual dee flies, the "MOONLIGHT". It just happens to be a very good steelhead fly.

Tag: Flat silver Tinsel
Tail: G.P. tippet and jungle cock on each side
Rear Body: Flat silver tinsel
Rib: Small oval silver
Veiling: Kingfisher back-to-back, top and bottom
Front Body: Black Floss
Rib: Large oval gold
Hackle: Black spey feather (this one tied with Whiting Spey Saddle Hackle)
Throat: Widgeon (this one tied with guinea)
Wing: Cinnamon turkey (this one tied with the real McCoy) or white turkey
Head: Black thread
