The version I will show you is my secret tech I use. I am sure I am not the first one who has thought of this, but I haven't seen anybody else use it. I will be tying a red/pink Nuke which is also my HOT color both spring and fall.
This is a list of items you will need:
Size 6 Tiemco Fly Tying Hooks TMC 105
Glo Bug Yarn (Salmon Egg)
Micro Chenille (Red)
Pink 3/0 thread
Vice, bobbin, scissors, and whip finisher (optional)
Step 1: Secure the hook into the vice. I prefer these Tiemco hooks because they are 2x . They are stronger and thicker and I haven't had them straighten on me like I have with other hooks. Salmon and Steelhead can really test your gear and your hooks or leader are always the first thing to give.
Step 2: Wind you thread from the eye of the hook about half way to the bend.
Step 3: Wind the thread over the Chenille and then work the thread back towards the eye of the hook.
Step 4: Take a piece of pink Glo Bug Yarn and cut about an inch and a half off. The pink is now called Salmon or Salmon Egg.
That's it! I typically use the red/pink or orange/light orange color combos. I'm sure other combos work and sometimes I experiment, but this is a good 75% of my fly box and I try to carry 25+ of each color.
