Fly Box: Chernobyl Variation

A variation on the standard royal combination of peacock herl and red floss, these flies feature purple floss and dyed purple peacock herl. In this easy box filler that takes purple to the extreme, Hareline’s STS Trilobal Dub takes the place of the purple floss, and big foam and rubber legs top out the pattern for an excellent attractor fly.

This is starting to look like a Prince concert.
The purple dyed peacock herl adds a buggy twist to this big foamie.


Against a black background, not only are the purple legs visible,
but so are all the untrimmed hairs. Oh well.


Going production mode on big foam attractors makes
dozens fly out of the vise all on their own.
