No 7. The Parrot

The Parrot is a fly that I use often when the water temperature is a bit lower. Both sea trout and rainbow trout seem to like it.

Material list
Hook: Maruto C41SE. Streamer hook with a bent hook shank, size 4-8
Thread: Black
Tail: A small stack of hot orange fox hair. The length should be about 2/3 of the hook shank.
Body: Pearl Crystal hackle 5mm.
Wing: Fox hair. Yellow with green Highlander on top the yellow. The wing will reach back to the end of the tail. In between the different layers of the wing I tie in a 2 strands of pearl flashabou.
Hackle: A well marked Teal feather.
Overwing: A small stack of black fox hair tied in over the hackle and the yellow / green wing.
Head: Black tie wire lacquered 3-4 times and then painted eyes on the sides. White or yellow background with black pupills.
If you want to add some more weight to the flie you can use silver chain eys insted of painting the eyes.
