A friend of mine, Daniel D. Holm, showed me this pattern a few a weeks ago. He was preparing a trip to Iceland, and wasn't going to leave without a handfull of Francis flies. He came up with this variant, which I was very inspired by. Now I'm going to take them for a swim in Norway. Maybe the salmon would like them here as well ;)

Tube: Orange
Tail: 4-5 hackles (stripped and cropped) and krinkle flash
Wing: Rusty brown fox
Hackle: Orange grizzly hen
Body: FutureFly orange body

Not sure exactly why, but they are appealing to me. Of course, I don't count, only the salmon do.
