Gunmetal Sparklewing RS2

Posted on April 05 2018

Fly of the Month

This month’s fly is the Gunmetal Sparkle Wing RS2.  I found this pattern in the book Go-To Flies by Tony Lolli.  It was created by a Colorado guide named Chris Eisenhard.  This is another example of combining feeding triggers from other existing flies into a very effective creation. The standard RS2 pattern with the addition of a rib and sparkle over the wingcase. Since I discovered this pattern many years ago it has been a good producer when nothing else would work.

Bead      - Gunmetal glass
Thread  - gray 16/0 to match body
Tail         - gray microfibblts
