Hook: Any suitable panfish hook (here, a long shank size 6)
Weight (optional): Bead
Thread: 6/0, yellow
Tail: Yellow marabou
Ribbing: Fine oval gold tinsel
Body: Chartruese Glo Bug yarn, tightly wrapped
Wing: Yellow marabou
This is a good fly for cold water, especially yellow perch just after ice-out when they're starting to get active. The fly can be worked slowly and still get plenty of action from the marabou.
The original recipe calls for a yellow chenille body, but I prefer the Glo Bug yarn for its visibility and ease of use. Don't use a strand of the yarn in the thickness that it comes in....pull it apart lengthwise and use only one half for each fly.
Boy Mark, thats real close to my flies for the simple but deadly fly swap. Looks good!
