Mad Pumpkin Variant
tied by Chefben4
Fly Type: General Saltwater,
Recommended Region: Southeast US,
Hook-Gamakatsu SL12S 1/0
Thread- Orvis Chartreuse G.S.P. thread
Tail- Rabbit Zonker Strip, Chartruese
Flash- Pearl Flashabou
Body- Chartreuse Marabou, Palmered
Head- CCT Body Brush, Purple
Tying Instructions: Step 1: Start thread halfway between hook eye and barb and work back to just before the bend
Step 2: Tie in piece of zonker strip and a couple strands of pearl flashabou, length as desired. Note-I used regular zonker strip, magnum zonker would probably be better. Apply a dab of glue to base.
Step 3: Tie in a large and fairly pliable marabou feather and palmer forward, remembering to stroke fibers back as you move the feather forward. Tie off and coat base with glue.
Step 4: Cut piece of CCT body fur and tie onto base of marabou. The piece I used was about 4" long. Palmer forward while stroking body fibers back.
Step 5: Tie off body fur and form a head. Whip finish and glue.
