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.
