The 3G with Hidden Cone
This pattern I made for fishing diffrent rivers in Norway in july and august but it also works well on Sea trout here in Sweden in late april and may when fresh fish starts running the rivers. The name 3G comes from the colours that are called Gul Grön Garry(Yellow Green Garry in english) so there buy the three Gs and I got the idea to the wing from the great old pattern Garry. This version is made with a hidden cone head as body and it gives both weight and volym to the fly when fishing in hard streams. So you can fish these kind of flies in fast water just with a floating line. You can do almost nearly every pattern like hidden cone version and I will present more of these flies before the summer.
|How to set up the Tube and Cone Head.|
Tube: Small and Medium/Large Plastic Tubing.
Body: Meduim Size Brass Cone Head Copper, Gold, Silver Or Green (Depends on the colour of the water were you fish) If you want a heavier fly use tungsten cones and if you what a lighter fly i recommed Eumer Brass Cone Head that are very light.
Hackle: First a Yellow Soft Hackle tied in After the first Yellow Fox Hair. Second a Green Soft Hackle tied in as a collar after the wing is ready.
Wing: A small bunch of Yellow Fox Body Hair. A few strands of Yellow Wing n'Flash. A bit bigger bunch of Chatreuse Fox Body Hair. A few strands of Chatreuse Wing n'Flash. A bit smaller bunch of Yellow Fox Body Hair and it should be shorter than the green hair.
Head: A small Eumer Cone Head in Copper, Gold, Silver or Green. I use the same colour as the body cone.
