This fly was an instant success.
Clients called it, "Fly du Jour" (fly of the day).
Fly du Jour
The "Fly du Jour"
has been proven on all sizes of rivers and during a wide range of water temperatures, and conditions. It is one of the have-to-have flies no matter where you fish steelhead along the Pacific Rim. The Fly du Jour may be the best of all
the Deschutes summer steelhead flies for floating line fishing the majority of the season. Ninety percent of the season it is my point
or dropper fly of choice. Just another purple and pink fly? Maybe. There are many. Purple and pink is a popular theme on the Deschutes with such patterns as Rick's Revenge and the Freight Train being examples. The Fly du Jour is different because it uses a revolutionary material called Edge Bright for the
orangish pink butt. Edge Bright is a material that gathers light through its broad side and
amplifies it through its narrow edge. It is wrapped on the fly so that the rear edge of every wrap is exposed. Viewed from the rear this butt literally glows. The effect is further enhanced with the butt surrounded by a halo of dark purple materials. The pattern was an instant success when it was introduced in 1990. In the space of a couple of weeks two different groups of clients
who didn't know each other called it the Fly du Jour (fly of the day), and that is how it got it's name.
These "Special Edition" Fly du Jours are tied on Alec Jackson Nickel
Plated Steelhead Iron hooks. This is a well proven fly, having been
used for many years by our guide service. The Alec Jackson hook is
noticeably heavier than the original TMC hook, which allows the fly
to ride a little deeper in the water. The nickel plating increases
the flash factor.
