Another in a series of adaptations of old time favorites.  The "Metal Butt Skunks" from Riverwood Flies.  A big fly for big, fast, deep water.  Tied only on size 1.5 and bigger to maintain balance in the water.  Tied as shown in with a red butt, also in green butt and purple body/green butt.  Keep the heavy colored copper wire no further back than the hook point and be sure to wind to nearly mid-shank or this fly will not drift well.
