tied by Dble Haul
Fly Type: Attractor Pattern,
Target Species: Pike,
Recommended Region: not available Northeast US, Alaska, Western Canada, Eastern Canada, Central Canada,
Here's a pattern that I messed around with the past few seasons and have had some success with, particularly on bigger fish. The freely swinging twin tails seem to drive them nuts.
Hook: Dai-Riki #810 or equivalent, 3/0
Tail guard: Wire loop
Lower tail: Magnum zonker strip
Tail flash: Krystal flash
Upper tail: Magnum zonker strip
Collar: Three layers of marabou
Eyes: Doll eyes
Head: 5 minute epoxy
Tying Instructions: Materials are tied in the order listed. I use 24 gauge galvanized wire for the tail guard.
Presentation Tips: Chartruese and yellow (pictured here) performed best, with the usual red/white and red/yellow doing well also. This fly needs a heavier rod to cast (marabou and magnum zonker = sponge), but its potential payoff is worth the effort to me.
As usual, a steady cadence is the best retrieve. The rabbit tails will do all the work in the water.
