Green Hornet Fly Pattern

Hook – Dai-Riki #135
Size – #8 for Steelhead, #6 for Salmon
Thread – olive 6/0
Weight – none
Body – Opalescent Olive Estaz
Tail – none
Eyes – black mono eyes (small)

Comment – Call it an Estaz egg with eyes, call it a nymph but this is Ken Mika’s (owner of Franek’s Market in Traverse City) favorite fly. Equally effective for both Salmon and Steelhead. A very simple fly to tie and durable too. On those days when green and olive are hot, a good fly to have in the box.
