Skinny Thor

Steelhead Flies - Thor 2 Flies - $8.00

A slimmed down version of the traditional hairwing pattern. Same great color combination, but slimmer body of angora dubbing instead of chenille. A late summer / early fall favorite!

Casts and swings nicely with single hand, switch and spey rods.

Two sizes - 2 and 4.


Pattern Recipe and Notes:

Hook: Salmon/Steelhead size 2-6
Tail: Orange Saddle Hackle Fibers
Body: Red Angora Dubbing
Rib: Round Copper Wire
Hackle: Brown Saddle Hackle
Wing: Arctic Fox or Skunk

A basic hairwing style - tail, body, hackle, wing. The original pattern is a chenille body, but I prefer a slimmer profile and choose to use a dubbed body instead. Seems to perform best in the fall.
