A luminous bodied bug... originaly dressed for grayling, but found excellent for browns on dull and dirty days in deepish water. Never tried it for rainbows but I would be confident of takes on it. Body is luminous spinner skirt, wrappes to slightly overlap to give segmentation...thorax is Red based Angelina, thorax cover is white plastic raffia coloured dark pink with permanent marker, legs are Partridge hackle.. thorax cover is drawn over the hackle and tied off..head black and varnished... Head is A bead or just thread varnished When finished the back is coloured an orangy pink with lines drawn down the sides with a fine tipped marker.
