There are a few things in the recipe I follow that are worth detailing a little. Powder painting is incredibly easy and adds a little more detail to your fly. Can you get away with a standard nickel or black nickel Pocket Cone? Sure, but it's a fast extra step that takes a few seconds to do and adds some detail to your pattern. There are lots of color options for powder paint, also. I have been sticking with ProTec paint, and it has worked great for me. Wrapping the marabou in the tail produces a tail that is a bit longer than "standard," but by wrapping it you lose the squared-end look of tying in a plume of marabou. For the tutorial below, I shrouded the darker marabou over the lighter color, but you can also tie them in together and wrap together, doing more of a blend for the tail. I am also convinced that wrapped marabou moves better in the water than a standard plume just tied onto a shank. The hot spot/gill schlappen wraps for this pattern are also a detail touch I have recently started adding to this fly. Depending on the color pattern I am tying, I typically use pink, orange, or red for this step. This hot spotting is something I have been doing with most of my streamer patterns lately and the results have been great.
Here's the video tutorial link for the fly:
And here are some photos of other color combos of this pattern I have tied. Give this one a shot, and I think you'll enjoy tying and fishing this one as much as I do!
