In my list with wet flies, in addition to the natural hare color and black, there is the olive color. I consider them the simplest and most effective colors because we find them everywhere in nature, in all waters, on all insects.
- Hook: Demmon N500 BL #12
- Thread: Yellow Perdigon flat body thread (color code A8)
- Ribbing: tinsel flat in gold
- Body: mad rabbit dubbing in yellow mixed with olive dubbing ( I prefer Hare mask fur but squirrel or anything spiky works well)
- Hackle: Partridge feather from neck or from back of the bird.
It is fun to make these flies and they work excellent. Especially when you get bored of nymphing and dry fly fishing is not working, then switch on wet fly fishing with these type of flies 🙂
