JailBird tied by FisherOfMen Fly Type: Streamers
Target Species: Freshwater Bass
Recommended Region: Northeast US
Thread: Grey/Brown 6/0
Legs: Two Grizzly Hackles
Body: Two large Grouse Marabou Feathers
Collar: Grizzly Hackle
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.
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.
