tied by FisherOfMen
Fly Type: Streamers,
Target Species: Freshwater Bass,
Recommended Region: Northeast US,
Imitation: Mice,
Material List:
Thread: Grey/Brown 6/0
Legs: Two Grizzly Hackles
Body: Two large Grouse Marabou Feathers
Collar: Grizzly Hackle
Tying Instructions: Tie in legs out in a "V", curved out&upward.

Stack and tie grouse marabou towards back of hook shank to create space for collar.

Tie in hackle at stem, wrapping a nice collar.

Whip finish.
Presentation Tips: This is my first pattern. It closely mimics and combines traits of 2 different patterns, though I did not realize this at the time of tying.

This streamer is impressionistic, imitating a mouse or a frog on top, while the collar gives the marabou energy subsurface.
