I used the recipe from Alpharetta outfitters GA. For this tie. Also see Northern anglers for Russ himself timing this very cool streamer. I used yellow marabou from MFC for the tail, two pieces. I need to back up just a bit, the waters I fish in Michigan are restricted, one hook on a fly. So the portion of my streamer is a shank, marabou tail, olive brown polar chenille and a dark brown shalpen for a collar. I use the 19 strand beadlon wire , but heavy mono is also good for the connector. I also use a red bead tight to the front hook. My front hook is Ahrex 610 size 1, two more marabou feathers for tails a short section of olive brown polar chenille, for bulk Ep fibers brown/olive craft fur brush and EP fibers root beer sparkle brush twisted together and brushed out. Dumbbell eyes color of your choice and finally EP foxy brush for the head. I have to add I love the brushes, especially the 1.5 foxy head brush, they make it so much easier to tie in a head. I’m looking forward to giving these a go soon.
