The motivation for this fly began after finding a spool of Kreinik
metallic ribbon with the intriguing color name "Vatican Gold". Since this
body material already had some religious overtone, my thought was to link
this with some other kind of religious symbolism. I had remembered
something being written about 'tongues of fire' descending upon the
disciples, and that mental imagery seemed bold enough for a truly 'hot'
attractor pattern. A combination red/orange wing would be fiery enough.
The Vatican Gold ribbon gave it some flash, and peacock sword for contrast
and just because I like it (though, one could further symbolize that the
green represents a few dollars for the collection plate on Sunday).
