Suggestions? (Update: This fly will be known as the Glowing Specter Sakasa Kebari, 3/18/13)
I think one of the coolest things about coming up with new and different flies is giving them names. However, sometimes I have a little trouble coming up with something "catchy." In the past I have turned to other anglers and bloggers for some suggestions. I need to do the same with this sakasa kebari. To be honest I'm not even sure if this one has even been tied before. It's a simple tie consisting of only a grey Hungarian partridge hackle and an iridescent thread (veevus, iridescent). What I think is cool about this fly (even though it's not very evident in the photo) is the various colors embedded in the thread. As you move the fly around reds, yellows, blues, greens and other colors pop out. I'm hoping it will catch the attention of some trout. What it needs is a name and that's where any readers come in. I will take any suggestions till this weekend. On Sunday I will pick the one I like the best and the winner will get a half dozen. The last time I did this I received some very creative names and I'm looking forward to what you guys come up with this time around.
