Tying a fly called HKA Sunray (Bismó)

Fly Tying Tutorial From Ívar’s Fly Workshop

Here we will be tying the Bismó tubefly. The Bismó is as I understand it a variation of the Sunray Shadow fly.

The Bimsó can be tied with blue, white, green, pink, and all sorts of colours for the underwing. The fly is a great option when it comes to fishing for Atlantic Salmon and is really popular for it.

It requires advanced tying skills for it and a needle to hold the tube. It took me a few times to get it flawless in the way I wanted it to look. When making the Bismó I strongly recommend to tie like 5-10 of them and work all of them step by step.

Begin with the mylar piping of all of them, tie the wings on all of them, and then finish all of them with the job to put on the eyes. Great fly and works both for salmon and sea trout.
