Green Highlander Variant

Although not a fly I've used much, I tied up this Green Highlander variant to try out next season. I tied up a couple very similar last year too if I remember correctly but never used them. Since my fly boxes are re-stocked for Spring already, I'm just tying up a few one offs. I don't really use any flies with green in them but this one looks nice. We shall see what Salmo Salar thinks!
Green Highlander Variant tied on a Yuri Shumakov tube.
