Done! After make the labels I'll try to throw them in the mail today.
The Drunker Sailor - created by Gary LaFontaine
It's a pretty basic marabou streamer, as you can see. If you are not familiar with LaFontaine's theories, one important aspect for him was balancing imitation - though never strictly, and what he called the "trigger" - or characteristic that makes a fish strike. He pioneered the use of Antron yarn in fly tying, he loved the way the material sparkled and looked like trapped air under water. On this fly the antron is an attraction, but the heavy off-balance weight creates a natural impression of a wounded/dying bait fish and is the real trigger.
I went out and fished one last weekend. It really does roll over and drop between strips. I believe the effect would be increased in still water or deep slow holes and runs.
