This is a specialized fly. Design to sink deeper into buckets of deeper water in holding areas in rivers. This fly is doubled weighted. It is tied with a hidden .25" nickle bead . The hidden bead helps prop up the Marabou with Intruder Prop hackle followed by Marabou. The second weight element is the Intruder eye (Real Eyes Plus) - medium size. The fly has lots of material - full silhouette which helps move Steelhead. If you can meet the Steelhead half way in depth in the bucket you have a good chance at moving them to a grab. Other option is to put on a heavy tip, but once you move away from the bucket into more normal swing water you will want to change the tip, or change the fly.
Other goodies tied into this fly Chartreuse Lady Amherst Center tail , and Grizzly Saddle Hackle for it's wing.
