Well, I suggest Lefty's Deceivers Otherwise, you could tie some of the bigger fluffy minnow types. In all honesty, the main non-weighted minnow pattern I know is the Deceiver, while the Seaducer uses palmered hackle. Maybe try a variation of the seaducer using the synthetics? You could also check out some shrimp patterns... the latest issue of Fly Tyer was loaded with them!

Ok, this HAS eyes but they are bead chain.... Do a search for a Dan Blanton's Whistler. Here, I'll do it for you....

Dan Blanton's SPS Whistler

I have caught Jacks, Snook, Ladyfish and baby Tarpon, on this fly in the salt and in cold water I have taken Steelhead, Coho and a whole "S-Load" of King Salmon. For what it's worth a color scheme in purples was a great color for the Salmon/Steelhead and whites and chartreuse for the salt.

You have to match up all the tail feathers together (6?), both sides, and tie them down all at once.
Directly on top of the hook with a pinch wrap. I wet them all to hold them together.

I tie most of my deceivers flat wing style. Partly because I'm cheap and it uses less material but mostly because I like the action better.
Here's the basic instructions for 3 feather flat wings which can be incorporated into a deceiver style fly

I know I mentioned this in another of your threads, but you could try a hollow fleye
This one's made from Halloween wig hair

Rip, thanks for the Flatwing suggestion, I'm going to try this out as well! As far as deceivers, Robert, I just started tying them too and they are certainly frustrating. However, as they say, practice... well... may lead to perfect if practiced perfectly. I'd just say tie a bunch til you get em right, that's been my approach. Can't say I've reached the endgame yet haha.
