    Who's your dead head? How about this streamer?
    That is a nice long snow white bunny strip between the braided silver body cord and the blue streamer hair back, not a gap.
    See the red throat? I got all the colors and the fish skull to match the dead head skull. Five dollar bill shows this fly is $$MONEY$$ and also how long this pig is!

    So does that mean "you got five on it?"

    That five dollar bill is all that is left of my gear whore allowance. It is merely a point of streamer lengh reference. My five dollar bill is 6 and 1/8" long so my streamer made the cut for the length bonus.
    If I had time to fish it I think I could entice something into hitting it too. You don't like my chances? I think I met the color scheme requirement with the red dubbed throat body, long white strip over the silver tubing and blue back flash. I think I met the length requirement too.

    Ok, here is my 12" Marabou Dead Head Streamer. The pictures didn't come out very well so I'll try to retake them. I finished it on the 22nd before midnight but couldn't get a good picture so I'm going with these for now. Notice the (poor) attempt to create a head like the logo, complete with lightning bolt.

    (edit: Mumbles gave me photo lessons so here are the final ones)

    Cheeze and Rice Freestone...
    That freaking 12" streamer has to be in first place now. I guess I'm glad I did not put my five on my 6" streamer. I like your artistic approach and I'm sure that BIG BROWNS and Pike should hammer that dead head streamer with sincerity. I'm hoping for a consolation prize.

    At 12" it'll probably show up on NORAD radar stations if you cast it! :thumb:

    I'm definately the #2 fly. Sorry guys. I thought I had it with that long ass white streamer until sick nasty Freestone droped the dirty bomb. That 12" streamer is just amazing. I probably could not cast that beast, but I'm sure that some of the MT guys would like her to tie up a few more for them.
     
  14. My vote: Freestones 12 inch marabou streamer.
