The size of this Sunray
This a 75 – millimetre fly…or medium version – The tubing is 30 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
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 perfectly represents these gleaming and erratic.
