The size of this Sunray
This a 100 – 110-millimeter fly…or medium version – The tubing is 43 millimeters 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 silver fish like Capelin and sand-eel as seen on 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
Fish them fast!
These baitfish flies are designed for fast waters and fast retrieve – A thin long wing gives the fly a very slender look and we cast them across the river on a 90-degree angle or even upstream… We retrieve them in a fast ripping motion.. and often leave them still – only – when we reach the rod tip… Most salmon will take this fly with a huge splash often jumping clear of the water… We strike when we see the fish jumping or the line tightens
