Sunray Shadow variant

Ívar's Fly Workshop

Today we will be tying the tubefly Sunray Shadow by Raymond Brooks. Raymond designed the first Sunray Shadow fly and the fly we are tying is a variation of it. Originally the fly was designed in Norway around a river that Raymond had for rent and he even applied for patent of the fly! That's perhaps the reason why there are so many variations of the fly today. The fly is relatively easy to tie and if you are going to fish for Atlantic Salmon (e. Salmo Salar) this is one of the must have flies to take with you!

Long story short

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
