Black flies, as we all know, never goes out of style. Neither does the aggressive profile of a rather slim and well tapered wing. The combination of this with a little bit of flash and glimmer makes a winner any day of the season.
Black and gold is a combination I’m willing to fish anywhere, anytime. It catches fish in everything from glaciers rivers with the blueish tint to the very most humus colored forest rivers.
Here’s a little step-by-step on how I tie and build my Samurais:
Tube: Gold S FITS Tungsten Turbo Tube + Black XS FITS Tubing
Tying thread: Black 12/0 SSS Thread
Body: Alta Gold + Charcoal Black SSS Glitz Dubbing
Wing: Yellow/sunburst underwing followed by a slim a very well tapered black over wing (stiffer hair materiels are preferred)
Sides: Jungle cock
Front hackel: Black soft hackel
Cone: Yellow Metallic FITS Tungsten Turbo Cone Micro
