Since its origins, the sunray fly was a huge success from northern Europe has conquered boxes almost all fly fishermen the world. Its popularity has grown as people were entering the use of tube flies, SUNRAY always demonstrated inversely proportional to its complexity fly tying effectiveness … very easy to make and super proved effective not only in its origins its magnetism to Atlantic salmon, but it has also shown the same with almost all salmon in the world, especially when it comes to big brown or rainbow trout in large environments.
Although its complexity is bound no criticizes the choice of materials and proportions wing long and amount is given to the hairs of it, which should be long, straight and present a smooth rolling motion.
The model here is tied amending subtly body, abandoning the classical method of this fly with a transparent tube without eliminating the effect the transparency of the body gives the fly, especially when looking to mimic juvenile fish. The use of a transparent heat shrinkable sleeve on the tubular body pearlescent mylar body gives us a realistic looking, translucent and extremely durable.
The use of low wing bucktail is an important support for the soft hair that forms the top of the wing, that my taste is relative to the type of waters in which make swimming my fly, for example in rivers strong current I prefer a low wing “strong” as the Bucktail, while for slower streams rivers or lakes I prefer to use the SUNRAY with low wing hairs softer such as the fox or the goat.
