Fox Hole Special 3 1080.JPG

Fox Hole Special

Attractor Fly Pattern

Hook - Mustad 3665A or equivalent, size 6-8
 
Thread - Black 
 
Ribbing - Flat silver tinsel
 
Body - Black floss
 
Throat - Yellow bucktail
 
Underwing - Orange bucktail 
 
Wing - White marabou 
 
Shoulder - Mallard or teal flank 
 
Eyes (optional) - Painted black over white

The Fox Hole Special is one of the better landlocked salmon streamers, and brook trout will take it as well. It’s a so-called attractor pattern, and best described as a dressed-up Black Ghost Marabou, with yellow and orange bucktail and a shoulder added, the latter to imitate a gill plate. The fly is easy to see, has great action, and is just different enough that it will catch fish in pressured waters where the fish see pretty much everything else. The Fox Hole Special is one of the top ten landlocked salmon streamers in Maine.

These will prolly never be polished enough for the arts but fishable.  GreenButtSkunk and FreightTrain.  
Zoran great looking bug!

Tried one with the “BirdFur” feather palmered followed by oval tinsel to secure.  Kinda a pain and not the best outcome.  Just placed this eye on to look dont ostracize me yet  🙃

I tried to tie hybrid emerger with wire and pheasant tail body but sunk eventually in glass of water.

I guess I have to minimize body materials and make fly float better, Looks kind of OK on pictures but needs work in reality:

Very nice looking fly, as you said.  I'm sure it would work well just as it is, fishing it like a flymph or winged wet.  Maybe slap that hackle right behind the eye  and in front of the foam for more movement.  Best to send that reject to me for testing.
