As those of you who saw Mike Kinney tying at the Fly Fishing Show have seen, Mike ties a fly that has a pair of dry fly quality saddle feathers (grizzly natural or dyed) tied like this fly of Norseman.

Mike's fly uses marabou wrapped on the trailing hook and either a tube or a hook with the bend cut off for the front of the fly on which he ties a shoulder of dubbing and then wraps marabou and either dyed guinea or mallard flank as a face hackle. This fly of MIke's is a full 4 or 5 inches long and he uses this fly only for winter runs.

It is MIke's considered opinion that the stiff saddle hackles sticking our the rear of the fly entices steelhead to strike because it is a very visable but also somewhat subtle visual cue that triggers an aggressive strike response.

Kush PM on the way......

Fly Tyer.....I have to agree with Mike Kinney. Both he and Ed Ward have the right idea...the shoulder of the fly , if you will, props up any marabou or ostrich, creating a vortex for the water to flow over and really make the material dance in the water.

I use a dubbing brush of twin copper wires, with seals fur trapped in between the two wires for the shoulders of my flies. Alec Jackson demonstrated this in his Psuedo Speys. The brushes are made using the Nor Vise, which I just love tying with.

Jake.

Jake,

I agree wholeheartedly about the need for a shoulder on a marabou spider style of fly. Also, the face hackle of guinea, mallard, or teal causes a slight vortex that ads to the play of the marabou (or spey hackle if a spey or dee fly) in the water.
