What do you get when you combine the wiggle of rabbit, the breathability of marabou, and the silhouette of deer hair?

Hook: Size 4
Thread: 3/0, brown
Eyes: Gold dumbell
Tail: Dark olive zonker strip
Collar: Orange marabou
Head: Natural deer hair, spun, packed, and trimmed to shape

The dumbell eyes ensure that the fly rides hook point up, but the deer hair head makes it sink slowly.
