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.
