I want to give a big shot out to A Marblehead Flyfisher where I purchased all of these materials. I'd also like to recognize my buddy Rick for all the tying advice over the years and my buddy Neill who has banged more snook on these flies than I have. His feedback has proven invaluable to the development of this pattern over the years.
This is a hollow tie with a small spun deer dam under the sparse maribou. I've been messing around with predator wrap. I think it may be too long here. We will see once we get it out on the water.
