Pink & Tan Grayling Bug

The Arctic grayling is one of my favorite fishes to catch on the fly. They are gems and look as though they belong in the tropics rather than the cooler climates they are often found in. I fished for grayling quite a bit in Alberta and have had days where I was able to catch so many I wasn't able to keep count.

Pink is a great color for grayling, but I like to fish it somewhat subdued. While I have done well with glowing bright hot pink flies, the hint of pink feels right.
