I like all the variations, guys. Such a simple, versatile pattern. These two are the same pattern as Allen gave us, just a couple color and material variations.

The basic black but I use peacock ice in a dubbing loop for the body (the nice color of the ice dub got washed out in the photo):

And yellow with black UV Polar Chenille (again the nice purple flash is washed out, sorry). This is a simplified version of a pattern I cannot remember the name of that has a spun deer hair head on this same configuration - that makes for a really nice little streamer.

This one shows the flash of the ice dub and polar a little better:

There are a couple other pics in the "Pictures & Albums" section under the "Community" tab.

Carman, looks like a fish-catcher to me! With a long tail, the only thing that I ever worry about is short strikes; where the fish attacks the part of the fly that doesn't have any hook in it. But most people say that the fish keys on the head of the fly (eye region), so I'm not sure that short strikes are anything to be really concerned about. But, I'd like to hear from the rest of you on that topic.

Popperfly, nice little collection there! I particularly like what looks like a grizzly hackle on the black bugger to the right. The light colored beadhead also look intriguing. I think you're ready to hit the stream!

John, the peacock ice dub looks really good to me on the first bugger! Very buggy appearance to the body. The second one with the polar chenille looks like it should have really good body motion in the water. I know what you mean about the deer hair headed streamer venison, but I'm blanking on it, too.

Keep those buggers coming; only two more days to the next step-by-step!

Carman, you want to tie in you marabou just like you in any tail no matter if the material is feather or fiber or whatever. Hold your marabou feathers together with the tips lined up and stroke them together so they are a little less crazy, then measure the length that you want the tail to be - approximately the length of the shank for this fly - and pinch the clump at the that point. Hold the pinch of marabou at the tie in point on the hook shank and bind it down. It may seem like a waste of a lot of feather, but the tips of the marabou are denser and will have better action in the water. Hope that helps.
