Grizzly Baitfish Jig

1290094789_0923202342a_2(1).thumb.jpg.c2baba578504db8a28fc30f85ef1a399.jpg

Hook: Size 10 Jig Hook

Tail: 2 Medium sized Grizzly hackle feathers 

Body: Pheasant Marabou (mix of light and dark)

Collar: Large grizzly soft hackle 

Bead & Hotspot: 4mm copper tungsten bead and red floss for hotspot

Super simple fly that I'll probably tie with eyes and a resin head at some point. This version fished really well last weekend and I had a blast tossing it toward structure/undercut banks with my 3 weight and nailing aggressive trout. Criticism/suggestions for improvement are welcomed.

A few people asked me to make an SBS on how I make segmented Mayfly bodies. You can see it if you like in SBS sub-forum.

The first one is for the easiest method, the floss method. Others will follow using hackle and other things to make the bars.

It is a snowshoe rabbit with cdc caddis.  So I do custom ties for people.  Many times they send me pictures and ask me to copy.  That one took me like 9 tries to figure out how to do it correctly.  Haha!   But they didn’t give me a name for the fly.  I know I’ve seen it, or at least similar places so I’m sure it has a name.
 

 As for the last one (extended body mayfly), I left the abdomen long like that because that’s what the picture he had showed.  So I just copied.  It is way too long in my opinion but, it’s what he wanted.  I really like marks way here, I’m gonna be going and checking out his how to on that!  Very cool!

Just a crackleback.  Might have mentioned, but I prefer bushy hackle.

edit to add: all comments and criticism welcomed!

Same here, looks similar to something I know I've seen before, but I can't place it. 

Did a quick search and only Egan's Corn Fed Caddis or an egg laying Caddis by Matt Grobert look close.  I think its Egan's fly that I remembered, but yours looks better.
