Visting The Vise! Fish Skulls, Zonker Strips, And Some Marabou

  I have been playing with some streamer patterns this week in hopes of hitting some rivers for smallies this weekend. If the rain ever stops. I have been playing with some of the new items I received from J.Stockyard on my last order. This is one of the flies I tied up last night that replicates the recipe for the Barr's Bouface Streamer .  It is a simple pattern to tie, but it defiantly transforms the fly when adding a fish skull to the head. Hopefully this one intrigues the fins.

Hook: Size 4 6x long 2x heavy

Thread: Rust Orange denier

Head: Medium Gold Fish Skull

Body and Tail: Orange Barred Rabbit Zonker Strips

Thorax: Orange Marabou

Dubbing: Rust Orange Squirrel Dubbing Behind The Head


  1. No doubt the smallies will love that one! Those fish skull heads are really cool, and give simple patterns some extra flare.

    1. Thanks Justin. Those fish skulls defiantly give the extra flare. Hopefully the rivers come down this weekend after all the rain we have had.
