Happily fish that with confidence, I'm still on the WG's for next spring, the Banana's are next on the list.

Awesome job. Not sure if Hakan Norling invented it, but it’s a fly he fishes a lot for the big fish.

Don't know how I missed this all these months, I was probably away but I see it now. That should do the deed, I made these flies this past spring using dyed Mountain Goat for the winging and they caught many King salmon here.

A great looking fly. What did you use for the wing? I've bought a couple of pieces of Arctic/Marble fox pre-dyed 'banana' but it has been too brown. That looks just the right shade of yellow to me

It' a hair I got from a fellow member of the forum who dies himself some hair. Very nice shade indeed and top quality hair too.
