I wanted to tie a new streamer pattern and it should have a great movement in the water. So I united 3 importend characteristics:
movement because of the articulation
movement because of the material
movement because of the weight
So I tied an articulated fly with ostrich and zonker strips and put on a Fish Skull Baitfish Head. These aluminum heads are weighing about 0,45 g. Enough weight to let the OZO Streamer jig, light enough to cast it easily.
The ostrich and the zonker stripes are moving fantastic. Every little piece of the fly is moving and jigging like it is something real.
There are two Gamakatsu F 314 #6 hooks in this fly. The front hook is normal, the tail hook is pointing upwards. If you don’t like to fish tandem hooks, or it is not allowed in the water you fish…no problem! Just cut off the first hook with a pair of pincers and your are ready to go.
A little tie from this morning. A Klinkhamer-style pattern with a wing post of CDC. The body is a mix of three different dubbings including Alpaka, a bit of flash and some synthetic dubbing twisted for a slim, tight body. I used a Daiichi D 1160 Klinkhamer hook # 12.
