Brown Soft Hackle Streamer tied by cussfly16 Fly Type: Streamers
Target Species: Trout
Recommended Region: Southeast US
Hook: 3x long Gamakatsu
Thread: Dark Brown UTC 70 denier
Tail: Golden Brown Marabou
Body: 5 strands of Dark Brown Ostrich Herl
Hackle: Golden Brown Marabou and Brown Speckled Hen
Start by weighting the hook with 15 wraps directly in the center of the hook, equal spacing left on both sides. Tie in tailand pull remainder over lead and wrap down and trim. Do the same for front hackle. You are trying to build a football shape in the middle. Attach Herl and spin into a rope and wrap body. Push Marabou back to form front hackle and make a few wraps to hold in place. Then attach Hen and wrap as normal....... Whip it and clip it!
works great on pressured fish that have seen it all.....
