Another Icelandic take on the Bugger; added the rabbit up front for a bit more action. Weight as desired; left this one light to throw at frustrated stillwater spawners in the shallows.

hook - Dai Riki 700 #4
thread - UTC 140 black
tail - marabou black
flash - Flashabou pearl
butt - chenille chartreuse
rib - small wire silver
front body - chenille black
hackle - hen black
collar - rabbit black
eyes - bead chain stainless

mash barb, start thread; tie in eyes




measure (shank length) some marabou; tie in/trim






tie in flash on either side of tail; fold, wrap to tail






tie in chenille; take 2 wraps, tie off/trim






tie in rib & chenille; wrap chenille forward, tie off/trim






tie in hackle, wrap to butt; capture tip with wire, rib body (not shown)






create thread loop (wax thread), insert zonker strip, trim skin, spin










wrap collar behind/between/in front of eyes, tie off/trim, whip finish, SHHAN, trim flash








Regards,
Scott

Holy Hippy...Batman!!!
That would look cool with the head trimmed down and a collar left behind the eyes, I bet.
Kind'a like a bass fly.

(As a dad would say back in the day..."get a haircut".)

Scott, I assume that's a video clip of some sort you responded with. Unfortunately, I can't see any links or whatsoever to play them on this site. I have no problems seeing videos on other sites, just this one.
And I don't have the techie knowledge to remedy. :(

You're not missing much; it's just a vid of the Cowsills' version of "Hair".
