About the Sunray Shadow JC Salmon Atlantic Fly
The Sunray Shadow JC is an extremely simple and versatile fly that is extremely good at catching sea trout, steel head and pacific salmon.
It is successful whether swinging high in the water, briskly crossing the current towards the bank, skating temptingly across a pool or simply allowed to play in the eddies and swirling currents that moving water creates.

Comments from other fly fishermen
Great fly for steelhead on the West Coast -- B.C. Canada that is. I use copper tubes for extra body weight in winter to scrub the bottom in cold water. Sinle barbless hooks by law here, but the pattern really does look better sporting a triangle.
