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.
