Rainy Day Special was designed and tied by Salmonfly.Net Contributing Fly Tyer and author, Ard Stetts. You can see more of Ard's flies at The Flies of Ard Stetts. See his notes about this fly below.

Ard's Notes: By experimenting with many synthetic materials which are widely available I discovered that this particular combination has proved itself to be deadly on silver salmon in overcast and rainy conditions. It is quite effective either dead drifted or on the swing. I have caught too many to count on this combination.
