Here is picture about a skin itself. Regarding tying I have different pictures.
Please do read how to use this succesful fly.
Many fishermen are looking for flies which have wings made of monkey hair.
Especially fly fishermen who are fishing for salmon and sea trout around the world.
Not many of them knows the point or the qualities of the monkey hair and most of them does not even know, that there is only one kind of monkey which has this hair with qualities necessary to making a fly with its special movement.
The name of this monkey is Colobus polycomos. When the hair is dry, it is straight and when it gets wet, it will become wavy.
The point is that if the fly is tied the right way as on pictures, then water will move with the wing such way, that the fly looks like a small fish.
Try it in some small stream or in a bath and make a stream with help of shower.
Invented by Ray Brooks and named after his fishing lodge on river Leardal, Norway, the Sunray Shadow is an extremely effective fly, based on a very simple concept.
The fly is basically a long, black wing on a tube, tied as Matuka, to keep it from hooking itself.
In a special edition, (we can call it RC Monkey), you can add through this piece of skin 2-4 fibers from peacock tail and/or a little flash.
It is a spectacularly successful and everywhere popular pattern (especially in Norway and Scotland) which has the ability to fish in absolutely all conditions.
It is sometimes fished as a riffled pattern on the surface with a floating line and at other times as a deeply sunk lure with very fast sinking line.
It can be found in varying lengths from 2 – 6 inches.
When fishing, just let the Sunray Shadow swing, high in the water, briskly crossing the current towards your own bank, or skate it temptingly across a pool.
This fly will work its simple magic when it plays in eddies and swirling currents that moving water creates; motion highlights the long and soft tail – into becoming what seems to be very much alive.
You can even buy skin pieces and tie by yourself with different variations regarding hackle on the body and a front hackle or body material.
Of course, you can always retie a fly that has been damaged by the jaws of the fish.
Or ask a friend who is a fly tier.
If you have any question, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Ask for a trailer if you want to see it how it moves in water…
