This fly was passed on to me by one of the old timers fishing the
South Puget Sound in Washington state. He had no name for it,
I've refined it a bit, the copper ribbing is not an option if you want
to catch more than one cutthroat per fly. They have sharp teeth.
One of the foods for cutthroats is Euphausids and
the olive bunny fur matches the Euphausids color
in the South Sound perfectly.
Hook: Daiichi 1720, size 10.
Thread: Olive 6/0.
Body: Silver tinsel.
Ribbing: Fine copper wire.
Underwing: 3 strands of pearl flash, length of the hook.
Wing: Olive green bunny strip.
Overwing: 6 strands of olive crystal flash.
