Here's another good winter fly. I like it as a trailer. Tied here as a "Wire Head" with an orange "Hot Spot". It can also be tied with pink, red and chartreuse thread. It doesn't get much simpler than that, but don't let that fool you, this fly takes fish in all seasons but really shines in the winter.
Hook: wet size #16-18
Thread and Hot Spot: Flo. Orange 6/0
Wire Head: gold 28 ga. craft wire or gold bead
Tail and Body: Pheasant Tail
Note: I like to add a dab of super glue to the wire head and the hot spot.
