Hot Butt Streamer

 
tied by siestafred
Fly Type: Streamers,
Target Species: Trout,
Material List:
Hook: #2 Streamer 3XL (TMC 9395)
Thread: Black Flat Nylon
Cone: Black Tungsten Large
Hot Butt: Red (or Hot Orange) Floss
Rib: Gold Wire
Body: H&H Medium Chenille Black (has some sparkle in it)
Wing: Hareline Magnum Rabbit Strip (Tan)

Tying Instructions: I got the idea for this streamer while fishing Atlantic Salmon last week. Many of the more effective flies we used had "hot" butts, plus there's an article in the newest Fly Tyer on this subject.
Colors can be varied of course.
In the photo it looks like I skipped a rib, but it's just hidden a bit by the material.
I've been fishing this general style of streamer for 2 years now and it consistently takes big trout.
