Streamers tied with a short-shank stinger hook better than streamers tied on traditional long shanked streamer hooks. Lots of tiers make "Articulated" streamers with trailing stingers--including several of the best tiers who post regularly here. But most stinger hook streamers are used to make large flies. What I'm doing here is to make stinger hook streamers even in the smaller sizes. Stingers hook better than long shanked hooks. Regardless size. This one is made with a swivel attached to a short hook, snelled on some backing. If you use two hooks (instead of a swivel up front) it helps to snip the bend off the front hook so you end up using the shank and eye only. That keeps the stinger from constantly tangling with a front hook that never hooks the fish anyway.....it's always the trailing stinger that gets them. Swivels are more better. Any hook that looks good Two badger hackles A clump of Pearl Ice Dub ....all tied on a swivel. Tie some backing to a swivel. Flatten the rear loop of the swivel with pliers. Snell a hook. Put a thin needle in the vise horizontally. Poke the needle into the rear end of the swivel. Lash the swivel onto the needle. Wrap over the flattened metal loop. Soak it with water based fabric cement. Add two feathers. Add a clump of Ice Dub. Glue on two prism eyes. I start gluing with CA glue and then finish up with a UV flashlight and UV glue. This is a simple and good fishing catching fly. You can add barbells up front if you want more weight.
