A picture of one of my most productives flies. Tied in black, brown, or olive it just plain catches fish.
Tail: Marabou of your choice
Body: Rabbit dubbing
Eyes: Med. gold bead chaiI do blend my own dubbing so it is very rare that you see one solid color on a fly.

Looks alot like a clump dubbing leah I learned to tie.

are u building a dubbing brush out of ling fibers and stroking them back as you wrap?

I do use a dubbing loop and place the dubbing in sideways and twist tight. I then use a small steel battery brush to brush out loose fibers and then when wrapping comb the fibers back. I also do tri color ones to imitate bait fish but use dolls eyes as opposed to bead chain.

I fish the DDH with a loop knot and will use every type of streamer tactic. The best for trout in rivers is the upstream and accross while in lakes I vary my retrieve. If I'm fishing for Cats the I cast upstream and do absolutely nothing. The Cats will hit half way through the drift or at the very end when it rises up towards the surface.
As for hooks I use a Talon SA-163C in sizes 4-8
