    Default Suggestions Requested

    I'm going to make some transparent glass bulb Christmas tree ornaments and place flies within the bulb. The diameter of the bulbs I have are: 4", 2-1/2" and 1-1/2". I didn't measure the openings yet. Except for full dressed Atlantic Salmon flies, what specific fly patterns would you suggest to place in these bulbs?

    Thanks.

    Feather wing streamer on the big size.... perhaps a winged wet in the medium, and a flashy dry fly for the smallest, like a royal wulff
    Faith, family, and fiberglass. Make it happen.

    Traditional bass flies are very attractive and smaller than most salmon flies. Take a look at Henshaw's Book of the Black Bass.

    Royal Coachman and Royal Wulff dry flies are the prettiest of dry flies IMHO. I also think a Royal Coachman streamer would look nice.

    Hi Allan,

    Silver Doctor's, or Holberton wet fly's would really pop in a christmas ball. You may need to be a bit careful when trying to put them through the opening though!

    Regards,
    Mark
