Streamer Time- The Alpha Male

Fall is streamer time in my mind.  So in the spirit of the season, I've been thinking streamers at the bench.  This is a pattern I've been trying to perfect.  I know, I know, its just a double deceiver with marabou... but hey, It looks fishy and I haven't seen anything just like it out there.  I basically just wanted a double deceiver with a bit more life and I though marabou would be the perfect material to add some "fluffiness."  The problem with marabou is that it slims down in the water.  I thought having hollow tied bucktail in there to support the marabou would help this fly maintain its bulk and it should push water pretty well.

I have never had a ton of luck with this pink and blue color scheme but I have heard that it kills in the right conditions.

I have had a lot of luck with anything yellow and orange.  I wet this one down to show the bulky baitfish profile.

I don't know if chartreuse and black is the most successful color scheme but I think it looks pretty cool.  I'm sure a big bass would bust it.  The tail on this one turned out a bit too short.

Hooks: size 6 8089 in rear, size 2 8089 in front
Thread: Black
Tail: 4 schlappen feathers
Body: Hollow tied bucktail and palmered marabou
Flash:  Flashabou
Eyes:  10mm MFC "Jurassic Eyes"
