Great looking fly, have you ever tried using Pink Bucktail under then Marabou over. It gives a great deal of action. For Dollies I do pretty well with bucktail. My most favorite material (if money does not matter) would be Artic fox spun into a dubbing rope; it’s the best for action and keeps a good form without collapsing under faster waters. What other colors have you been using and what system are you fishing with this patterns. I have found color real changes from system to system. Like Skagit Chums will take pink but every where else they take green and never pink. Just wondering?
