I love the bugger variations; some I've tried:
Squirrel strip over the back
Squirrel strip/soft hackle collar
'fish skull' versions
soft hackle collar with UV dubbing for gills
dubbing body instead of chenille
teal feather cheeks/fins with light dub collar
eyes glued to the conehead
Of course, now I need to copy yours too... SO hard to decide which streamer to use!
I really like the olive version. Gold works great here in spring. I am always surprised by the gaudy colors that salmon will take (salmon noob here)...
I was gonna say 'red headed stepchild' for the orange one
