Mike's Red Rocket Tan/Yellow 
Type of pattern streamer
Originator of pattern if known Mike Schmidt - Anglers Choice Flies
Tied and Submitted by Eunan Hendron
Level of tying experience needed to tie this pattern Intermediate, a little more complicated pattern, previous experience tying different types of patterns helpful.
Materials
Hook Gamakatsu B10S size 2(trail hook) and Size 1 (Lead Hook)
Beads 2 Glass Beads as spacers
Linker Beadalon 19 strand 0.018 "
Thread Tan 3/0 or 140 Denier
Tail 6-10 strands Copper Flashabou and Tan Rabbit Strip
Body Crustacean Tan Estaz and Palmered Yellow Schlappen Feather
Veil Tan Marabou
Cheeks Grizzly Marabou Natural
Head Rusty Bronze and Tan Senyos Laser Dub
Eyes Holographic Super Pearl 3/8". In this pattern i used 5/32" eyes, which i think are too small
Special tying notes When tying in the linker, wrap the front hook with lead, tie in the beadalon and coat with superglue. Also when tying in the marabou veil, i found lately that wetting the tips of the marabou at the tie in point allows for much easier manipulation of the strands to form a complete veil around the whole fly, as well as make it easier to trim them off for the final tie in wraps.
Target species Trout
