McNeese Golden Demon Variation

Dave recomended his variation of the golden demon for the D on bright days. He told me the hairwing pattern. I just couldn't resist and tied a feather wing in his style. Enjoy!

I like 'em both, but, would choose the bottom fly to fish. Very nice dressings.

I like both also, would use the hair for salmon and the feather for trout.

Nice,

Ard

Well tied. Amazing how often folks shy away from using tinsel bodies, bright flies in bright sun because they can be very effective in those conditions if tied small enough.

I watched the effectiveness of gold spinners on the D for years. Then Dave told me the recipe, and I had one of those "why didn't I think of that" moments. Makes you feel kind of stuck in your ways (or just dumb).

Great looking flies. Always liked McNeese’s style of tying.

Every year I have a list of stuff I didn't figure out until 20XX that was common knowledge to everyone else for years!

Just a quick thanks for posting this pattern. Yesterday, when the sun hit the water, I tied on the Golden Demon Variant. Lets just say that I am now a true believer!
