    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!

    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.
