    Hello, WFF
    First posting here, so I thought I'd share a pattern I came up with that I've had a fair amount of luck with.

    The fly I caught the fish on ( 1 Blue gill, it's original target species, and 5 freshwater cutties, Not all in the same day though ) was a #12 x3 streamer hook, but I lost the flies so i'm using a #10 hook.


    Tail: Chartreuse saddle hackle fuzz (didn't have chartreuse marabou)

    Legs: Harline Dubbin pearl Crazy legs
    Note, the picture attached has all the legs tied back, but I did tie a couple of these for my dad with the front legs tied forward for more action.

    Body: Believe it or not it's Light olive Angel hair cut 1" to 3/4" and blended together
    Note, for me it was kind of tricky to dub at first because it doesn't dub like commercially made dubbing
    And the other thing is, you have to use a dubbing loop because it really doesn't want to stay on the thread.

    Weight: 90% of shank wrapped with 0.20" lead wire


    Thanks for looking!

    That's fine if you don't plan on trying it in any other colors.

    It is possible it might also work in black, brown or whatever.
