The size of this Sunray
This a 50 – millimetre fly…or small version – The tubing is 20 mm long – The tubing is 3.2/2.0 mm. thick – The tubing diameter is flexible due to the special nylon compound we have formulated – So bigger hooks than those we suggest could be used
Two forms of fishing
This size of our Sunray Shadow series can both be fished as a regular sub-surface tube fly or as a riffling hitch fly by inserting the tippet through the hole in the belly.
Why are these long wing Sunray Shadow flies so good?
A substantial percentage of the food Atlantic salmon and steelhead eat at high seas is fish – often small silverfish like Capelin and sand-eel as seen in the photo – Most likely the long-winged tube fly like the Sunray Shadow will encapsulate the essence of these fish
Baitfish like sand-eel is on the menu for salmon across the northern hemisphere – The Sunray Shadow is a very good representation of these gleaming and erratic
