Murky Water Streamer by Ruben Martin

It’s been said a million times, “If it aint chartreuse, it aint no use”, and in the case of low visibility waters, the bright green remains a good choice. The Murky Water Streamer is an articulated fly and the front hook is meant to be clipped, so the important thing to note is the length of the hook shank. Personally, I’m not a fan of the limp trailer hooks and would prefer using a coated braided wire for the trailer. The fly pattern is a big one, and with the marabou collar and sili-legs, it will provide for a lot of movement in the water.

DFL Step by Step by Dave Hosler

Dave over at Pilecast.net has put together a nice little step by step of his latest slab catcher, the DFL. This has a great looking profile and a nice dark lateral line down the middle. Dave ties this up in classic Clouser chartreuse and white. You can check out the step by step and Dave’s write-up on the pattern. This should play well with a number of species like bass, pike and browns. Happy Tying.
