The disputable king of shadow flies. When the situation calls for strong silhouette and contrast, you tie on a Sunray Shadow. And even when it doesn’t, many still do – and catch fish. An excellent example of how a salmon fly can be dead simple, but still amazingly effective. Although these are “regular” Sunrays, they are also equipped with a hole on the side of the tube that allows hitching if needed. Also available: Aluminium Tube and Muddler Sunray Shadow.

I fish in Norway all week with this Sunray Shadow. It worked and held the condition excellent after a few severe fights with Atlantic Salmon.
