Thanks to Pab1 for suggesting this one-- it took awhile to get all the entries in and we had one mishap with the postal service, but hopefully it was worth the wait-- Nice job on the tying guys!

Tied by Pab1

Dai-Riki #710 Size 8 (1X Strong 3X Long)
Metz Black Conehead 3/16"
Ultra Wire Brassie Copper
Pine Squirrel Zonker Natural
Ice Dub Orange
Note from Pab1: One thing I usually do when fishing these is trim the bottom portion of the collar back so the ice dub is more visible. With the small hook the squirrel covers the dubbing when wet. I have also caught plenty of trout on them without trimming the dubbing so who knows. I hope they work as well for you guys as they have for me!

Tail: White Arctic Fox
Rib: Chartreuse Ultra wire (Small or Brassie Size)

Note from Eunan: The original pattern calls for marabou wing and tail, gold rib and fl yellow or green chenille body. You can also use beadchain for eyes rather than a bead head.
I've used this pattern effectively in the following color ways for anyone who wants to tie a few more themselves
All Olive
White with chart
White with yellow
White with orange
Black with chart
Black with yellow
Black with orange
I've also seen them tied with Pink body too.

Man! I can't wait to get these guys in! We've had high clear water for a couple of weeks, and for me that spells streamers.
These all look great.

thanks for letting me tie along
