Feather Brain--Marabou Gills

Here is another experiment... placing marabou as the fluffy movement under two sheets of Hackle pieces. I have included at closer picture of the head from up and below in the next two posts.

Here is the top view..note the flaring of the surface gills which are partially locked in by surface epoxy leaving the inner two gills, a aqua green hackle and then the marabou to move freely..water will flow both from without and within the fly, moving the marabou.

Here is the bottom up view which gives you a better perspective of how the water will move into the fly... this fly would need a lead keel to compensate for the heavy top weight of the epoxy..but for this purpose I have not included one. Actually the bottom up view is very close to what a real fish would look like looking into the gills. I hope the stripers think the same.
