Night Dancer Shrimp

Here is a Night Dancer steelhead fly that I adapted to the Irish Shrimp style last year. It is a very effective summer and fall fly either in morning or late evening. This one is tied on an Alec Jackson Spey Hook, #5.

This is the pattern:

Tag: oval silver
Tail: wound large webby red hackle
R. Body: black floss ribbed with oval silver
Veiling: purple Krystal Flash top and bottom
Hackle: black, large and soft wound as butt between body halfs
F. Body: black floss ribbed with oval silver
Veiling: purple Krystal Flash top and bottom
F. Hackle: purple, large and soft.
