This years warmwater experiment

The fly below is one of this years experiments.

Hook: TMC 8089 size 10 (a 4 or 6 on a regular streamer hook)
beadhead: Bronze
Tail: chartruese Fish skin (Area Rule Engineering trolling skirt matl)
Body: Chartruese chenille with a black maribou feather palmered over it.
Weed Guard: Double Mono loop

So far in 1/2 hour of testing it has produced a heart stopping strike from a pickerel as I lifted the fly for a cast at my feet. The weed guard has worked well at keeping weeds off the hook and the tail has not fouled.
