Thread: What is your favorite Dolly llama color?

  1. #1

    Lightbulb What is your favorite Dolly llama color?

    I am getting ready to tie up some big flies for the Kenai river and I would like to know what is the best color for the Dolly llama. I want tie up MOAL leeches using Dolly llama colors as the basic color pattern. Any and all suggestions from flyfishers would be helpful. I will post some photos of what I come up with. Thank you and tight lines.

    Sometimes all white is where it's at.
    Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it.

    Conehead Bl/Wh or Bl/Ch have been producing nicely.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    Im with Chuck. Olive/White or Olive/Black are my favorites. Purple/White and Purple/Black a close second.

    Well, this is the last batch of MOAL leeches in Dolly llama colors. Thanks for sharing your favorite color of Dolly llama with me. These are an interesting fly to tie, but the prep work on the hooks is a PITA. I am looking forward to seeing which fly will win the openning day on the upper Kenai: the Dolly llama or the MOAL leech. As a side note, nail polish remover will get your fingers unstuck. For some reason women know this, makes you wonder. Time to go, the coffee's done and I hear fish calling my name. Tight lines.
