    Right on! Looking Good. Make sure you tie some up in black, and olive/yellow, and white.

    Don't be afraid to bulk up the head with deer hair, wool, bunny or even foam.... Big profile.... move water and send vibrations, The lateral line is very sensitive.

    Cool, I need to run to a shop soon and pick up some different colored marabou.
    I am down now to just olive and white! So a spun head and some more bulk will help it?

    Yeah try to get a bigger "head" On it so it pushes more water. You can put some fins on it and underlay deer hair or wool. Look at it when it's wet and then picture a sculpin or sucker minnow.....actually I'll post a picture of a sculpin for ya.

    that would be a delekatable double screamer!
    nice baitfish colors, baby trouty... i cant say enough for hook gap, i am to using bass or stainless steel saltwater hooks.
    any fly can catch the fish up to about 20, but going above that with consistency involves profile. The bigger, the better.

    dan is right , Way bigger......I have some trout streamers that are bigger than my sailfish poppers. In the 12"-14" range. Try tying some with a 2/0 saltwater hook up front with 7/16" spirit river cone and a size 2, 3x long , dia rikki in the back. Build up the under body and put the marabou over the top.

    personally, i just bring the 14.

    but you are way better off with the 8 wt than the 6 wt. the 7-9 combo is great, the seven for stuff up to 6 inches, and a fast action 9 for the rest...
    that fly you have there what i call a "numbers" streamer, shit on the right day you can put 50 plus in the boat on that fly. especially on the upper madison and big hole. they are probably gunna top out around 20-22 with most goin 12-16. Which is sweet because you a) probably watched em annihilate it, and b) because the guys with bobbers always stare at ya like hilary walkin in on monica. oh you slut!
