Glimmer Sunny

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.
