striblue Mark..that maybe for pike..but in all chartruese it would also be a great saltwater fly. The use of the rabiit strip WILL make for great action ...and durability... good combo!

Dble Haul Pattern update...

I've attached an image showing two of the more productive color combos, and I now tie these with only three layers of marabou for the collar. Four layers slowed the descent of the fly in the water (which sometimes isn't too bad a thing), but they also tended to get snarled in pike teeth. I think that this is a case of less being more.

I could use red thread and entirely hide the final layer of red marabou, but by using white or yellow (depending on pattern) I'm able to let a bit of the red show through and maintain a random mosaic of color up at the head.

flyfisha1 My favorite color pattern! That looks like a winner; I tied a Hy-Tie in that same combination not long ago, looks very tasty...
Great fly...

Hook: 3/0
Thread: Red, 3/0
Eyes: Dumbell Real Eyes
Tail: Magnum zonker strip, white
Collar: Alternating bands of white and red marabou
Head: Thread with 5 minute epoxy

This is a wrinkle on John Barr's famous pike pattern, which is usually tied without weight or with a bead head. It helps to reinforce the thread wraps securing the zonker strip with Zap-a-Gap or equivalent.

Pete, one of these will be headed your way soon.
