Fly is tied with Golden Brown Deer hair for tail with orange flashabou underneath, then spun Elk hair for body with Deer collar and wing, finished with foam wing case.
Choice of hooks that come with this fly - see selection below.
Medium - for most occasions
Large - Off color water and heavier ripples.
(Tube Flies - leader/tippet goes thru the tube and is tied to the eye of the hook, then inserted into orange hook holder on tube. For surface flies this is an advantage as tubes float and helps the waking of the fly. Plus hooks can be changed.)

With many years of intense searching for these anadromous business partners, I have found tying my skaters on a 60° hook has had the most success. The fly skates, pops and gurgles, making it hard for fish to resist. The Hanger is easy to cast and will pop well due to the tail end of the fly being weighed down by the hook. This keeps the legs down and the foam up for that iconic pop. Greatest of all are most of the fish hooked on the 60° jig hook are landed. Black and blue for those early morning dawn patrols and over cast days, orange for bright fish, and white for that 12 O’clock lunch fish when everyone’s taking a nap.
