Using an #8 - #10 wet fly hook, lay a base layer of thread, followed by a bead chain eye.
After a dab of glue on top, place some lead wire as shown, and secure it.
Prepare some marabou as shown in our tip section, and tie on as a tail, the majority being black, then a bit of white. Add some blue flash, followed by a small tag of red marabou.
Using another piece of prepared black marabou, tie it in by the tips and to the side.
Followed by a piece of white on top.
Wind the black marabou forward and secure. If you want the body a bit fatter,
repeat after winding the thread about two thirds back. Trim.
Bring the white marabou over the top, secure and trim.
Using a small bit of black marabou tied in behind the head, figure-of eight it around the eyes and make a collar behind the eyes after moving your thread to in front of the eyes. Secure with a whip knot or two and you are done.
And while playing I was following a thread on millionare taddys...so just had to experiment.
From top to bottom, using pine squirrel, mink, and muskrat zonker strips with marabou tails.
The last one was trimmed at the bottom and some white marabou added, HOT fly style.
