Oh that was just a reference to the Chapel Run on the Skagit where Pete and I fished one morning. I landed a hefty native buck on this fly.

As far as this fly I usually tie at least three after the butt (head) often 5 for steelhead. The more segments, the more creepy it looks and it seems to have better appeal.

Some of the best tarpon hooks are short so you can add a tube extension (plastic) or tie this as a tube fly. Probably would work well to do the toothpick trick so if the fish pops the leader you get the tube back.

When are you goin?
