    A picture of one of my most productives flies. Tied in black, brown, or olive it just plain catches fish.
    Tail: Marabou of your choice
    Body: Rabbit dubbing
    Eyes: Med. gold bead chaiI do blend my own dubbing so it is very rare that you see one solid color on a fly.

    I do use a dubbing loop and place the dubbing in sideways and twist tight. I then use a small steel battery brush to brush out loose fibers and then when wrapping comb the fibers back. I also do tri color ones to imitate bait fish but use dolls eyes as opposed to bead chain.

    I fish the DDH with a loop knot and will use every type of streamer tactic. The best for trout in rivers is the upstream and accross while in lakes I vary my retrieve. If I'm fishing for Cats the I cast upstream and do absolutely nothing. The Cats will hit half way through the drift or at the very end when it rises up towards the surface.
    As for hooks I use a Talon SA-163C in sizes 4-8

    Stu~ The rabbit dubbing looks like it has flash in it. Is it just rabbit?
    thanks!
