the friday fly cook

simple marabou streamer

this is an early tie from way back around 2005 or maybe earlier , a great catching fly very simple to make and made to represent a perch .

hook - 4/0 Aberdeen

thread -clear mono

tail - grizzled hackle

flash - gold (any gold flash will do)

collar - chartreuse marabou feather

the tail section is made up from half a dozen grizzle hackle feathers simple tie in the flash , then tie in the feathers towards the front of the hook then wrap the marabou around the hook shank , tie off and varnish the whipping and that's it .

of course you can do a million and one colour combos and sizes with this fly and it really does catch fish give it a blast
