Smallie snake flies

Lou Tabory developed his snake fly for stripers, and I must say that in black it's one of my favorites for fishing at night. I've been using smaller, brightly colored snake flies the past few seasons for smallmouth bass and have had a ball with the pattern.

Hook: Mustad 3366, size 2
Thread: Yellow, 3/0
Tail: Yellow ostrich herl
Tail flash: Pearl Flashabou
Collar: Two layers of yellow marabou
Head: Yellow deer hair (spun, packed, and trimmed)

I've been trying to work out a few bugs with my new digital camera, so please pardon the lack of sharpness in the image.
