With a floating line this is one hell of a popper,but I've been fishing this fly with an Intermediate line the last week and it bagged me several fish. It pushes a hell of lot of water and leaves plenty of shockwaves under the surface,which has been noticable when stripping it back. A very easy tie to do. Two 120mm rabbit zonkers tied to the back of the hook shaft.Then a large clump of Olive bucktail ,followed by a collar for natural brown deerhair finished of with a tightly packed spun deerhair head. Here's a great video from the Afton angler which better explains what I'm talking about.
