This fly is tied on a Mustad 34007 or Daiichi 2546 size 2 hook. The nose of this fly is a white crystal bead and it has a red hackle collar as additional attractors. We have gone back to making this fly with a natural marabou tail instead of the synthetic fiber because we prefer the movement of the marabou. This fly has been killing it with the speckled trout as well as many other species of fish. A must have for your fly box.
