Hoh Bo Spey by Jason Osborn

i tie a ton of marabou steelhead flies, and I’ve recently started tying Hoh Bo’s in a few colors to match my Alaskabou colors. The Hoh Bo has a wound hackle under the marabou, and so gives it a bit more of a fuller shape in the current. I tie mine in Showgirl (pink and purple), Chum Candy (pink and blue), Nitro (black and chartreuse), Popsicle and a host of other colors. Use what ever colors you want on the fly and have fun with it.

Shank: Partridge Waddington shank or Fish Skull Senyo’s Articulated Shank
Thread: 6/0 Uni
Connection: 30lb fire wire or Senyo’s Standard Intruder Wire
Weight: Spirit river soft tungsten
Butt: UV Ice Dubb
Body: STS trilobal or dubbing of choice
Hackle: Jumbo guinea fowl
Collar: Marabou blood quill (2 colors)
Horns: Lady Amherst center tail slips
Flash: Flashabou
Hook: Octopus hook #2 or #4

If you have some extra Blue Eared Pheasant cluttering you tying desk, here is a simple little spey that can help you get rid of it. This one features a hairwing instead of the more traditional strip wing, but I do like the end result. I’ll need to come back to this little spey in the summer to tie a few for the fall salmon and trout run.
