The size of this Sunray
Full length 150 mm …or BIG version – The tubing is 40 millimetres 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
We try to develop and make things better, so this version of the original Sunray Shadow in Black & White has a set of 3-D eyes…
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 silver fish 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 perfectly represents these gleaming and erratic.
