I could not find a pattern that had the qualities I wanted so I came up with this. It is also my first attempt at tying a streamer and what a success it was! I had at least a dozen anglers ahead of me on the Bulkley River; all of whom where catching nothing. I put on my new creation and was catching fish about every 10th cast. 0ne 38" steelhead, 5 coho landed and 3 got off and a 2 1/2 pound bull trout. Here's what the fly looks like this morning after 10 fish. You may notice the hackle has come loose and is hanging back from the butt now like a tail.

Built on a 35 mm Waddington shank, Rio Powerflex Wire Bite 30 lb tippet for the trailer hook, chartreuse ice dub for the butt, fl. hot pink ice dub blended with pink seal fur dubbing for the body ribbed with a red saddle hackle, midnight rainbow Krinkle Flash for the wings (mostly the purple strands selected) and a collar of hot pink Lady Amherst.

I now need to name this fly. Any suggestions?
