Here's my first go at a Brown Peac-abou - a pattern I first became aware of after watching a Dick Talleur video. It's fairly easy fly to tie but I like it because it just looks like a fish catcher. This fly has two materials that normally do the job: marabou and peacock herl. It's also weighted.
I can hardly wait to give this wet fly/searching nymph a go in the Park come spring.
This one is tied on a size 8 streamer hook but you could make them as small as size 14.
The recipe is as follows (click on the links to see material):
Hook: Mustad 9672 Size 8 to 14
Tail: Brown marabou
Weight: fine lead wire
Body: peacock herl rope of 4 or 5 strands combined with thread,
Collar: Brown marabou, tips tied forward and then folded back in a collar.
