This fly is inspired by flies that folks over in Europe fish for Sea Trout. These flies are characteristically long and slender and they tie these flies on really tiny tubes and use less material which gives it a nice slim and translucent appearance when you put it in the water. You could even use a micro tube for this. If you want to use this fly to fish for Steelhead and Coho Jay recommends using a size 4 or 6 hook.
