Tying Instructions: This pattern is based on the Alaskabou with a few modifications. A tail of bucktail is added and a feather wing of one saddle tied in flat. The second collar is made of schalappen rather than marabou to keep the following marabou collar from flattening out. (The bucktail tail also prevents the first marabou collar from flatten as well.)
As with the Alaskabou, the beauty of this pattern is the blending of colors.
Presentation Tips: Swing it, drift it
