Hook: dry fly #10 4X long
Tail: black marabou
Body: pheasant tail
Rib: copper wire
Underwing: cream marabou
Overwing: black marabou
Head and Collar: natural deer hair
Next time I'll include a pinch of flashabou over the wing.
I used to fish this version more frequently. The Rocky Ford Rainbows
haven't seen this one from me in some time, if at all. I keep the head
round (sometimes smaller than pictured) and the collar long. I fish it ungreased
and strip it briskly through or just under the surface film, giving the marabou
plenty of action. I've had good days with this fly at Trout Lake
and have a good feeling about it for Rocky Ford.
