I use that basic bunny tail/ spun deer head fly for Pike all the time. I will have to try some Marabou on it. I like to tie them on Mustad C71 (long shank circle hook).
I started using this fly for juvy tarpon in the everglades; in orange or white it was my go to fly. Very good for snook too.
We live in complex times, what with fishing,sailing and skiing seasons overlapping.
