Sicilian Gold

Sicilian Gold

Hook - Salmon/steelhead style
Thread - Orange thread
Tip - Embossed tinsel
Tail - Red hackle fibers
Ribbing - Embossed tinsel
Body - Yellow floss or uni-stretch
Wing - Orange under white bucktail 
Head - Orange thread 
UV Resin

Reference - Steelhead Fly Fishing and Flies - Trey Combs & Trout Flies Volume Two - Terry Hellekson

Tying note - The Trey Combs book has the tip/tail in reverse order while the Terry Hellekson book omits the white bucktail in the wing, I tied the above fly usin the Trey Combs recipe and I reversed the tip/tail.
