Pictures a bit fuzzy but the fly looks very ..

similar to a very effective late season summer run fly 'down here' called the "Copper John."

Of late, it's been an absolute top end fly for hook ups. Several folks are using a heavy single egg pattern up front, and the copper john as the trailer.

The wire portion is done in copper, green or red. I've also seen a red-green combo of this but no idea if it's any more effective.
