Parakeet Tube Fly

Name Parakeet Tube Fly
Category Pacific Salmon
Tube 22mm Brass Bottle Tube with a 3.8 cm Transparent Purple Flextube Extension
Thread Red Uni-Thread, 6/0
Tail Hot Pink Marabou Topped with a Few Strands of Wine Krystal Flash
Body/Wing Chartreuse Zonker Strip Wrapped Forward, Topped with Chartreuse Polar Flash

This tube fly is tied using the Parakeet Pattern that I have had quite a bit of success for King, Silver, and Chum Salmon with in the non-tube fly variety (which see). Also see Parakeet, Orange/Black; Parakeet, Pink; Parakeet, Chartreuse/White and Parakeet, Purple for ideas about variations for this fly.
