Old Saint Nick
Hook: Streamer Hook (Mustad 9172) Size 6
Thread: Black 6/0 Uni Thread
Tail: Olive Marabou
Flash: Green Ghost Krystal Flash
Body: Green Holographic Ice Dubbing (Dubbing Loop)
Gill: Read Flashabou
Head: Black Cone Head
This is just a nice little streamer that usually bears gifts when attached to your tippet. I spent the day flipping this pattern around on the St Croix River today and had a blast. I'll post fish pictures this week.
The St Nick is a buggy little thing. The ice dubbing is put into a dubbing loop to give it that "buugy" body and the red gills are a nice little accent.
Give this one a shot, it is nice looking, easy to tie and a dream to cast and work in the water.
